Mama Pendo’s heart wrenching speech at Bomas
Baby Pendo’s mother today delivered a heart wrenching and uncomfortable speech at the BBI report launch at the Bomas Of Kenya.
Lencer Achieng particularly said some very uncomfortable words to the politicians who were seated at Bomas Of kenya of how her flower Pendo was plucked from her garden because of politics.
“A flower was uprooted from my garden and it can never be replaced… I can be given another person but not the same person like Pendo,” she said .
Achieng who seemingly has never recovered from the pain of losing her daughter in the hands of the police during the 2017 post election violence, however called for peace and tolerance.
Achieng also urged politicians to campaign peacefully, sell their political ideologies and in any case they lose, they should accept and support the winner.
She urged Kenyans to not any other mother mourn her child like she did.
“To politicians, when you come to us sell yourselves, then let us decide on the debe, those who have lost agree with the winners, we move forward… And when you come, please be careful of what you say, do not make us the youth fight as your lives go on,” she said.
Baby Pendo’s father Joseph Abanja also lamented being neglected by the government after the atrocities that happened to them.
He has also urged Kenyans to maintain peace and tolerance.
