President Uhuru Kenyatta danced along with an old lady who stole the show at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) Nairobi during an event where the head of state was distributing title deeds to Embakasi area residents.
The oldy lady, Ruth Wanjiru, seized the moment to entertain the President, detailing how she was excited at finally having a place to call home.
Despite holding her walking stick, Wanjiru marched around, imitating police officers, as Kenyatta stood at attention and later joined the hundreds who had convened in applauding her.
Before being ushered away by the President's bodyguards, the woman broke into a song to praise efforts set by Jubilee administration to offer land to squatters.Ruth Wanjiru entertains President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday, August 21, 2020, at KICC, Nairobi, after Kenyatta issued her with a title deed.File
"There is none other than you. Where have we ever seen another head of state like you? God is good and may He be blessed abundantly for giving you to us as our leader [sic]," she sang in Gikuyu.
Earlier on, President Uhuru Kenyatta stated that he would strive to ensure that the squatter issue is addressed. He issued over 38,000 title deeds to Tasia, Korogocho and other Embakasi residents.
Kenyatta urged the beneficiaries, who had waited for over 50 years, to contribute to Kenya's economy through exploiting the land they received.
He also lauded Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and NMS General Mohamed Badi for agreeing to work together. Sonko and Badi and Embakasi East MP Babu Owino assisted the president in distributing the title deeds.
Babu Owino was also spotted getting cosy with President Uhuru Kenyatta. The duo posed for selfies before cracking jokes with each other.
Sonko and Badi, later on, urged Nairobi health workers to resume their duties and engage them in talks over their salary demands. Sonko argued that the Covid-19 pandemic is a challenge to all counties and was a call to health workers to make sacrifices.Embakasi East MP Babu Owino (left) poses for a selfie with President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday, August 21, 2020, at KICC, Nairobi after Kenyatta issued title deeds to squattersFile
