Several sections of women from the Mt Kenya region have condemned Members of Parliament who recently insulted President Uhuru Kenyatta’s mother while also holding demos to express their anger.
One group, the local Maendeleo Ya Wanawake Organization said the insults hurled to Mama Ngina Kenyatta were also directed to the entire women folk in the country.
Through its County Secretary Wanjiku Gatimu, the organization said the vulgarity used by the Emurua Dikirr MP Johanna Ng’eno and his Kapsaret counterpart Oscar Sudi against the former first lady was unacceptable and disrespectful to women.
Another group of women held a peaceful demonstration in Kerugoya and Kutus towns and castigated both Ng’eno and Sudi for their disrespect to the womenfolk.
In one clip which went viral on social media, one woman warned Sudi that if he does not apologize and desist from issuing such statements, she will mobilize a group of mothers who will strip naked all the way to Deputy President William Ruto’s office where they will forcefully breastfeed him.
“Mimi nasema, Sudi akikataa kuja kuomba msamaha kwa kutusi wamama, tutaenda huko tukiwa tumetoa matiti akanyonye,” she boldly declared as the crowd of women in the background cheered her on.
Mt.Kenya mothers are very angry for the insults directed to First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta and indirectly being abused by Ruto's boys. They are ready to strip naked and walk naked to Ruto's "UCHI" if that is what will make @WilliamsRuto #RespectOurMOTHERS pic.twitter.com/OXqgIlm6Ac

The women threatened to stage more peaceful demonstrations until the two MPs went public to tender their sincere apologies or else stand cursed for doing the unthinkable.
