Sabina Chege is comforted by other women leaders after breaking into tears

Murang’a County Woman Rep Sabina Chege has explained Friday’s incident in which she broke into tears during the Embrace rally at Kimorori grounds in Murang’a.

Ms Chege explained that contrary to reports that she broke into tears after being booed by a hostile crowd, she only cried after “getting emotional for President Uhuru Kenyatta”.

“I dare anyone with a video clip of me being booed to produce it. I was never heckled.” Said Ms Chege.

“I was only overwhelmed by the love that the President has for the great county. Receiving vaccination machines worth Sh36 million and cheques for women and youth worth Sh25 million is not a simple joke.” She added.

She stated that she was moved beyond words and only tears could express her feelings upon the realization that some people still want to trash the president’s impressive development agenda that is open for all to see.

“I was overcome by the love and cried upon realising that there are people who just want to rubbish the development agenda in the county and in the region,” She clarified.

She was speaking on Sunday at Kahatia Primary School where she sponsored a free medical camp for the area residents.

Ms. Chege who hosted several female MPs for an Embrace rally in the county on Friday was forced to cut short his speech as the crowd became agitated, chanting DP Ruto’s name and prompting her to cut short her speech as she broke into tears.

Her voice was drowned in the jeers with her pleas failing to calm down the crowd prompting her to break into tears.

She blamed the incident on her political rivals, insinuating that the hecklers may have been deliberately planted in the crowd to embarrass her in front of her guests.

“I swear if you are here having being sent by somebody…I beseech you as your County mother, do not disrespect me in front of my guests.” She pleaded.

Her colleagues rushed to the podium to comfort and embrace her with the function interrupted for several minutes.
