No other person than Mr Kenyatta’s own son has defied his coronavirus curfew order.
Kenya’s President, Uhuru Kenyatta, has seen his coronavirus curfew rule broken by no other than his own son.
Mr. Kenyatta reportedly made the revelation to Kenyan media, expressing concerns about the lack of self-discipline.
Local media reports say he did not mention the name of his defiant son in question.
He said that one of his sons, whom he did not name, sneaked out of home and went out at night.
Reports say Mr. Kenyatta’s wife, Margaret Kenyatta, his son, and his mother, Ngina Kenyatta, were travelling to Mombasa when on April 6, the Kenyan Government announced a restriction on movement into and out of Nairobi, Kwale, Kilifi and Mombasa.
African Entertainment understands Mr. Kenyatta and Margaret have been blessed with three children in their marriage and they are
Jomo, Jaba and Ngina.
Jomo is apparently named after Uhuru’s father, Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya’s founding father and the first president of the republic of Kenya (in office 1964–1978), while Ngina is named after his mother and fourth wife of his father, Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
Accordingly, the Kenyan first family have since been ‘trapped’ in Mombasa.
And it is believed it was reported to Mr. Kenyatta that his son had flouted the curfew and other measures that the government had put in place to curb the spread of the virus.
Mr. Kenyatta is believed to have told the media that upon hearing about what his son had done, he confronted him and “I asked him a personal question after it was reported to me that he had done that. I asked him: ‘Fine, you’ve gone out, had your fun and enjoyed yourself. But now you have come back and you are with your grandmother… Your grandmother is 80 years plus. If something happens to your grandmother as a result of what you have done, how will you live with yourself?’ I told him it is not about me; it is not about listening to me. It is about how you will live with yourself.”
Meanwhile, he has urged self-discipline among Kenyans, of course within his own family, saying “It’s not about what the government is telling you to do. It’s not about what the President, or the minister of Health is telling you to do.”
