Uhuru reveals Mama Ngina’s tough question to Sonko

Mike Sonko put on the spot

President Uhuru said that his mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta, had been wondering why Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko had not facilitated her pension for her husband Jomo’s service at the Nairobi city council.

Jomo worked as a water meter reader in the 1920s before he ventured into politics, through the Kikuyu Central Association (KCA).

“Na wewe Sonko, mama anauliza wapi pension kwa sababu mzee aliwafanyia kazi (And you Sonko, my mother has been asking where is the pension since her husband worked for you),” the head of state stated amid uproar.

ODM Leader Raila Odinga was also allowed an opportunity to address the congregation, recalling his first encounter with the founding President.

“The first time I met Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, he talked to me in German,” Odinga said, adding that the elder Kenyatta sacrificed a lot for the good of the country.

President Kenyatta and the former Prime Minister reiterated their commitment to the unity deal popularly known as the "handshake".
