Retired President Uhuru has emerged in public for the first time since hired goons by pro-government agents invaded his family farm in Ruiru and stole 1,400 top breed dorper sheep and cut down trees in wanton destruction.
Uhuru appeared at St Francis Catholic Church in Nyali, Mombasa County where he sat among ordinary church goers instead of the special seat reserved for him.
Kenyans immediately turned to social media to express how humble the former president was and praised him for his calm demeanor in spite of the provocation he has endured in recent times.
Uhuru has never spoken about the raid at his family farmer at – Northlands City – where their flagship milk processing company Brookside Dairies is domiciled and where they are putting up a multi-billion city.
He attended the Easter Sunday mass that marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is a major event of Christianity, because it is the resurrection of Jesus Christ that givens his followers hope of a similar resurrection and life after death in Heaven.
Kenyans are marking this year’s Easter Holiday after difficult circumstances with a poorly performing economy and with thousands of civil servants having failed to receive their March salaries while other have gone for three months without pay.
It has also come at point when the opposition has called off mass action to protest high cost of living after President Ruto agreed to hold bi-partisan dialogue.
Ruto gave in to pressure after two weeks of deadly mass action that had been called by opposition leader Raila Odinga and which led to the raid of the Uhuru farm following allegations by pro-government leaders that the former president was financing the demonstrations.
Kikuyu MP and Majority Leader in Parliament had warned Uhuru that if the mass action continued, his Ruiru farm would be raided – something that came to pass.
