Mama Ngina's Plea to Uhuru Over Father's Debts Pays Off
The president was speaking in Nakuru when he kickstarted the issuance of over 40,000 title deeds to area residents, on Tuesday, January 14.
State House reported that Uhuru personally issued titles deeds to the remaining members and descendants of Nyakinyua dancers from Kiambogo and Solai areas.
The Standard further reported that Uhuru apologised to the dancers, famed for entertaining the founding father, for having to wait for long.
"There is one woman of your age who has always been on my neck reminding me of you Nyakinyua. I know you know whom I'm referring to. Those of you who speak to her, tell her the promise has been fulfilled. I am sure that the debt is now repaid," Uhuru affirmed, referring to Mama Ngina.
"You were a favourite group of my father. I am glad that was made over 40 years ago. It is a special day for me. Forgive the governments that came before me. Better late than never," he apologised.
He further disclosed that the deeds were processed over four months ago but he insisted on personally delivering them.
The president added that the issuance of the title deeds was a celebration of the country's freedom fighters and directed the Ministry of Lands to waive all charges on the documents issued to the group.
"I will come back after two or three weeks and ensure my directives have been adhered to," Uhuru affirmed.
The president was accompanied by Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui and Rift Valley Regional Coordinator George Natembeya.
