I gave my son a dressing down for breaking Covid-19 rules, says President Uhuru

Published

President Uhuru Kenyatta has told of how he admonished one of his sons for breaching the Covid-19 curfew.

In an interview with a local TV station, the President narrated how the son sneaked out while in a Mombasa trip recently with the other Kenyattas.

He said that he lost his cool when the son tried to defend himself despite putting the lives of other family members at risk.

“Okay, you’ve gone out. You have had fun. Your grandmother is 80-plus. What if something happens to your grandmother? How are you going live with that? Because you want to see your girlfriend?” said the president.

He revealed that his family, comprising his son, wife and mother got contained in Mombasa after the government announced a movement restriction from Mombasa to Nairobi and vice versa.  He said that the war against the Covid-19 pandemic required joint efforts and personal responsibility to win.

“This shall be a factor of personal responsibility. We have seen a surge in this disease and Germany is a good example.” This comes after the country registered the highest number of Covid-19 infections over the past 24 hours.

On Wednesday, 123 people tested positive countrywide as Nairobi remains the hotspot for the virus after recording 85 cases of the 24-hour tally. Kenya now has 1,471 cases after testing 65,000 people.
