Kiambu Family That Was Randomly Visited By President Uhuru Speaks Out, Explains Why Uhuru Was There

On Wednesday, July 14 Kenyans woke up to a viral photo of a casually dressed President Uhuru Kenyatta sharing a moment with three unidentified Kenyans in the most usual manner. The trending picture showed the head of state posing with three residents who from the look of their clothes were tending their farm deep in the rural areas. Well, the members of the family which President Uhuru Kenyatta visited earlier this week (Monday July 12) have spoken out. This family from Gatundu North were not expecting President Uhuru's visit. According to them, they only recognized the President when his mask fell down.

Damaris, one of the family members together with a visitor who had graced their home hurriedly took a photo with the president. From her facial expressions you could tell she was happy and she couldn't wait to share the news as it was a rare opportunity.

“Wee Uhuru alikua kwetu. That's my sister and her daughter. He popped in on Monday and went to the China power project at Kariminu River in Gatundu North. Our place being a kind of ka-island had been neglected so much. Damaris Karago explained.

Damaris Karago thanked God that the head of state chose their home since he could have easily popped into any other homestead around the area. She went on to narrate that Uhuru's visit will bring light to their village which for a long time had been neglected.

“The KPLC had always shied away from connecting us to the main grid until this China project came by. We were the first beneficiaries,” she said.

According to Damaris, President Uhuru had gone to launch an electricity firm that would see their houses get lights.
