Muthama insults just entertainment to me – Uhuru
President Uhuru Kenyatta has brushed off alleged insults by Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama saying they do not distract him from executing his mandate.
The Head of State likened the insults by the CORD Machakos Senator to a comical skit performed by legendary comedians Mama Kayai and the late Mzee Ojwang’.
“To me these insults, which I always see on TV, are just entertainment, it is something that just makes me laugh and after that I get back to work,” he said amid cheers from the crowd.
The President called on political leaders to practice mature politics and focus on delivering their campaign promises to the electorate.
He expressed his gratitude to Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua and Yatta MP Francis Mwangangi for agreeing to work with the government for the betterment of the region, despite difference in political affiliations.
“Leaders should know that politics is only a vehicle to get elected and once the elections are over, they should work together in serving the electorate,” he said.
Muthama has been a fierce critic of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government and is one of the top CORD leaders who have been actively involved in organizing and participating in the anti-IEBC demonstrations.
Last year, Muthama, during a rally at Uhuru Park, accused President Kenyatta of being lenient to former Devolution and Planning Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru despite her being mentioned in the Ksh 791 million NYS scam.
Early this year, the former CS sued Muthama and Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale for allegedly portraying her as a thief.
In her court papers, Waiguru accused the two of making unfounded allegations against her during the rally in September by claiming that the President had given her Ksh 25 million instead of paying teachers, who were at that time on strike.
