“I have been sitting there for more than 6 hours and all I have heard is politics. We have to respect our departed Mother. But let me mention a thing about Politics, we came together with Raila to unite Kenyans.
We agreed with Raila to have a constitution where after every election we move on. Let me say this, none will stop me from bringing Kenyans together.
The other day I had somebody speak about my family in Msambweni By-Elections, let me say this, Votes are obtained from the voter’s nobody will be given the direct win. let us respect each other. — Uhuru
Those who said we are tied with other families, I can as well stand here and say two families have ruled since so we also want other tribes to rule.
“For Atwoli and Senator Malala, Everything has its time. We believe in Democracy. I am in charge and I know what I am doing.” President Uhuru Kenyatta.
