But then Sonko was indebted to Uhuru’s family, in the 2018 Memorial for the First President, Uhuru publicly called out Sonko to settle debts that the Nairobi City Council owed his Mother.

According to Uhuru, his mother, Mama Ngina Kenyatta kept asking for her pension money from the Nairobi County Government. This is because Mzee Jomo Kenyatta worked as a meter reader for the Nairobi City Council, hence his wife Mama Ngina deserved to be paid the pension money for her deceased husband.

Uhuru revealed that the Nairobi County had never paid Mama Ngina any money, which her husband earned as a water meter reader for the City Council in the old days.

“And by the way Governor Sonko mama anauliza pension yake iko wapi hamjamlipa… anataka kujua pension iko wapi?” Uhuru publicly asked Governor Sonko.

Apart from this pension from Nairobi County, Mama Ngina Kenyatta also earns half a million shillings from taxpayers’ money every month. This is her State Salary for being the wife of the former President of Kenya.

The finance act demands that Mama Ngina should be paid 40% of what President Uhuru earns every month. Therefore, the half a million is a percentage of the 1.44 Million Shillings that Uhuru earns as Kenya’s fourth President.
