President Uhuru's message to the Gatundu family that bought him a gift

The family from Gatundu offered more than their votes to the President who is celebrating his birthday.

The family of three (man, wife and son) carried a piece of cake in a carton box wrapped in an eco friendly bag. They were all dressed in matching T shirts written Happy Birthday Uhuru Mum & I love you.

Uhuru when asked by a journalist concerning the Gatundu South Constituency family’s kind gesture, he responded, “I tell them thank you.”

However, he did not reveal whether or not he would be receiving the gift or not.

Uhuru  on  Thursday  10.50am casted his vote at the Mutomo Primary School polling station. He urged Kenyans to embrace peace, shun ethnicity and live in harmony. He was in the company of his wife, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and some other family members.

He said, “I believe that we are tired as a country of electioneering. It is time we move forward. Let us cast our votes, elect our leaders and move on.”
