"I Wish the President Can Support Me" Lady Whose Baby Was Held by President Uhuru in Kibera Speaks

The 29-year-old Eunice Liavuli became the talk of town after President Uhuru Kenyatta was spotted holding her two-month-old baby, Shaisly Imbuhira, at Kibera Level Three Hospital in Nairobi on Wednesday when the head of state Uhuru Kenyatta, ODM Leader Raila Odinga and NMS boss General Badi toured the area. 

Eunice Liavuli has spoken expressing her excitement after the president held her baby. She says that she had just entered the consultation room with her baby and that is when President Uhuru Kenyatta walked in. Liavuli says that she was confused and didn't know what to do. She says that she thought of standing up as a show of respect to the head of state. She adds that at one point she felt like she should walk out of the hospital citing that she wasn't among the President's entourage. Liavuli says that she was confused adding that it was like a dream to her as she interacted with people who she only spots on television. 

Eunice Liavuli narrates how she interacted with the head of state Uhuru Kenyatta."The president was standing infront of me and he gave me a fist bump. He was looking cheerful and I couldn't believe that I was interacting with the head of state. I felt excited and shocked at the same time. The most fascinating moment was when the president ask me to hand him by baby," says Liavuli. 

Liavuli who is a mother of two says that she wanted to whisper something to President Uhuru but felt so scared. She says that she wanted say thank you to the president for building the new hospital. She reveals that they have been going far seeking medication especially for the infants.

Liavuli also says that if she had a chance she could have asked the president to help her get a job or begin a business so that she can be in a position to bring up her two kids with less struggles. She says that there were so many people and she couldn't have told the president anything.

Eunice Liavuli also says that she received so many calls after the photo of the president holding her baby went viral online. She now wishes if the president can support her even if it is helping her begin a business.
