Uhuru finally addresses stolen sheep!
Retired President Uhuru Kenyatta has broken his silence on the theft of sheep from his Northlands farm. Speaking at the Jubilee Party National Delegates Conference on Monday, Kenyatta said he had chosen to remain silent while the Kenya Kwanza leaders “took advantage” of him. However, he said that his silence had only led to abuse, theft, and the burning of people’s farms.
Kenyatta was referring to the theft of nearly 1,500 Dorper sheep from his farm on March 27, 2023. The sheep were stolen by a group of men armed with machetes and other crude weapons. The theft took place during a protest called by the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition.
At least 50 of the stolen sheep have since been returned to the farm. The animals were returned to the farm at different times by people who told staff there they did not want to be cursed.
Kenyatta said that he would not be cowed by the theft of his sheep or the other attacks that have been carried out against his supporters. He said that he would continue to fight for what he believes in, even if it meant facing opposition from his political opponents.
“I will not be intimidated,” Kenyatta said. “I will continue to fight for what I believe in, even if it means facing opposition from my political opponents.”
Kenyatta’s comments come at a time of heightened political tensions in Kenya. The country is scheduled to hold general elections in August 2022, and the two main political parties, Azimio la Umoja One Kenya and Kenya Kwanza, are locked in a fierce battle for power.
The theft of Kenyatta’s sheep and the other attacks on his supporters are seen by some as an attempt to intimidate him and his supporters ahead of the elections. However, Kenyatta has vowed to remain undeterred and to continue to fight for what he believes in.
