Retired President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday, April 9, 2023, attended a church service at St Francis Catholic Church in Nyali, Mombasa.

This was the first public appearance for the former President since goons invaded his Northlands farm in Ruiru on March 27, 2023, destroyed property and stole valuables including animals.

Uhuru was accompanied by his close family during the Sunday service.

On March 27, 2023, a mob stormed former Presidents Jomo and Uhuru Kenyatta's Northlands farm in Ruiru well-armed with machetes and power saws before they began to cut down eucalyptus trees and carted away sheep grazing after accessing the land from Kamakis along the Eastern Bypass.

Police responded 24 hours later, despite admitting that they received distress calls from the farm.

Uhuru has never made a public statement about the invasion.

While the goons stormed Uhuru's property, a separate group riding on motorcycles invaded Raila's family company, East African Spectre. They (goons) pelted the building with stones before breaking windowpanes.

Raila while alleging that Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua was behind the attacks condemned the incidents terming them as foolish acts of cowardice.
