President Uhuru Kenyatta has for the first time revealed who helped First Lady Margret Kenyatta to deliver their firstborn son.
The Head of State said Kisumu county Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o’s sister helped Margret deliver his son Jomo.
Speaking in Kisumu during the burial ceremony of the governor’s mother Dorka Owino Nyong’o on Friday, June 14, Uhuru acknowledged he din’t know the deceased at personal level but recalled how one of her daughters helped Margret deliver.
“I would like to finish by saying that I did not know her well, I heard that she wanted to be a nurse. At least I can testify she would have been a good nurse and the reason she would have been a good nurse is because the first daughter who spoke here who is a nurse, she is the one who delivered my first son Jomo,” he said.
He further said Jomo is now a grown up man with his family and even he has a son.
“Therefore, that is confirmation that she would also have made a good nurse. Mama continue taking care of us, the son is grown and he even has a wife and a child as well,” he affirmed.
Owino, who died on May 28 aged 98, was laid to rest at her matrimonial home in Sewe, Kisumu county.
In attendance were Opposition leader Raila Odinga, who ceremoniously welcomed the president at Kisumu International Airport, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, governors among other leaders.
