The former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta has said she will not relent on her calls for Kenyans to continue staying in peace and that freedom and harmonious co-existence among the people were some of the things they fought for during the struggle for independence.
Speaking on April 2nd in Nyeri where she was invited to witness the shaving of Field Marshall Muthni Wa Kirima’s dreadlocks, Mama Ngina asked the elders to continue speaking to their children to stop using foul language which she described as shameful.
“We fought for our children’s sake and for the peace of the country and we shall not relent. We must keep on talking to them so that they can stop subscribing to the foul language they have been using which is shameful. We must not forget where we have come from as a country,” she said.
The former first lady who was accompanied by Nairobi Governor aspirant Agnes Kagure among other leaders also called on Kenyan youth to reject the hand out mentality and instead embrace the initiatives by the government meant to raise their incomes for the long term.
“The government is working effortlessly towards providing money to the youth so that they can venture into businesses to sustain themselves and so I want to urge them to shun the need for handouts. The little money should not make them insult and speak carelessly about other people,” Mama Ngina noted.
