MP Johana Ng’eno Stands Behind Sentiments, Declines To Apologize To Uhuru, Mama Ngina

Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ng’eno is standing behind his words that saw him spend three days in a jail cell.

The defiant MP who was released on Sh1 million cash bail after being charged with incitement said he will not apologize to the President or his mother, Mama Ngina.

“I was arrested, locked up and charged in court over alleged incitement. I have spent three days in police cells. I have nothing to apologise for,” the MP told the Nation.

“While I was away, I understand there are people who apologised on my behalf… I would not apologise on this one.”

He also noted that the President must respect others for him to be respected.

“The President must choose which side of history he wants to be at the end of his tenure,” he said, adding that Kenya should not be turned into a police state.

“We must protect the Constitution, the rule of law, the right to association and the freedom to choose what is right and wrong. We should not allow the democratic gains and ideals under the constitution to be rolled back,” he continued.

Ng’eno and his Kapseret counterpart Oscar Sudi have been under fire for the past week over their sentiments.

Nyeri women gave the two politicians 7 days to apologize to women or strip naked.

Sudi, like Ng’eno declined to apologize noting that he did not err but his words were misinterpreted.

“I was very surprised to see so many people agitated that I referred to women’s breasts, it is even in the bible, that was not an insult, I will apologise once people show me where I went wrong,” Sudi said on Wednesday.

Last night police officers thronged Kapseret area seeking to arrest the firebrand lawmaker.

His constituents came to his aid and blocked roads leading to his home.
