This public appearance comes after their family land in Kamakis Area along the Eastern Bypass in Kiambu County was invaded by a group of armed individuals on March 29, 2023.

The group chanted 'Mau Mau' slogans and demanded a share of the land, claiming that they too are Kenyans and deserve to own land like the Kenyatta family.

Reporters who went to cover the event were also attacked by the armed individuals who had already entered the property.

Despite the occurrences, no arrests have been made in connection to the raid. The Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) has launched an investigation into the alleged failure of the police to protect the properties owned by Mr. Kenyatta and Mr. Odinga.

In a statement, IPOA boss Anne Makori said that there was a possibility that the police failed to execute their duties as stipulated by law.

Despite the ordeal, Mr. Kenyatta and his wife have maintained a low profile.
