Jubilee MP apologises to Ngilu over rape remarks

Kitui East MP, Nimrod Mbai, has finally apologized to Governor Charity Ngilu, over his remarks in a past Jubilee Party rally where he called for her rape.

The Jubilee MP found himself on the wrong side after a video of him making the offensive remarks owing to Governor Ngilu’s hard stance against President Uhuru Kenyatta circulated on social media, with Mbai now saying that he regrets making those utterances “to a person who is like his mother and a good leader and mentor”.

“Governor Ngilu has good leadership skills that i admire. I want to extend my heartfelt apologies to her,” said the MP during a talk-show in a local radio station.

Mbai has even promised to support Ngilu’s governorship and to campaign for her re-election in 2022, to steer the county forward in terms of development and life improvement of the people of Kitui.

On September 16 the National Gender and Equality Commission (NGEC) called for the arrest and charging in court of Mbai, with the commission saying that the MP’s utterances amount to incitement to violence contrary to section 96 of the Penal Code, cap 63 of the Constitution.
