I Won’t Apologize To Uhuru And His Mother – Ng’eno

KEY POINTS

  • According to Nge'no respect is two-way traffic and President Uhuru “must respect others for him to earn the respect".
  • I was arrested, locked up, and charged in court over an alleged incitement. I have spent three days in police cells. I have nothing to apologize for,
  • Ng'eno condemned the action of the police in which an NTV journalist was also hit and injured by the police, saying it was an affront to the freedom of the press.

Defiant Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Nge’no was vowed he won’t apologize to President Uhuru and his mother Mama Ngina over his recent statement.

According to Nge’no respect is two-way traffic and President Uhuru “must respect others for him to earn the respect”. He added that the President must allow divergent views on various issues to prevail.

“I was arrested, locked up, and charged in court over an alleged incitement. I have spent three days in police cells. I have nothing to apologize for,” Ng’eno told Saturday Nation.

Ng’eno’s sentiments come just a day after Ng’eno was released on an Sh1 million bond.

“The President must choose which side of history he wants to be at the end of his tenure,” Nge’no told the publication.

He said Kenyans must not allow the country to be converted 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 added.

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

After being released from police custody on Thursday, the MP was welcomed by his supporters at the Dikirr trading center but were forced to flee after police lobbed teargas at them.

During the process, Ng’eno was hit on the lips by a canister

Ng’eno condemned the action of the police in which an NTV journalist was also hit and injured, saying it was an affront to the freedom of the press.

“It is unfortunate that the people were dispersed with teargas yet they were not a threat to peace,” Ng’eno said.

“We will be patient with this but we shall carry the day in the long run. All this will come to an end at one stage or the other. In the meantime, we will soldier on.”
