‘If it’s me you want, come for me’ – Uhuru speaks after police raid his son’s home
Police have raided the home of former President Uhuru Kenyatta's son Jomo in Karen.
Preliminary reports indicate that the police have carried out a search in the home to establish if there are weapons.
Speaking after the raid, Uhuru faulted the government for attacking his family members, including the withdrawal of security for former First Lady Ngina Kenyatta.
"I have a situation where my son's home is being raided. If it's me you want, come for me. Why intimidate a 90-year-old woman or children? On my association with Raila, am I not supposed to talk to my friends?" Uhuru posed.
"The safety of my family has been threatened, and that’s why I’m here. I have been quiet, but being quiet does not mean I will not defend my family. I will defend my family to the end. I defended Kenya, and I did my best for this country and handed over when my time was finished."
The raid comes days after the government withdrew the security of former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
