In Summary

  • Former president Uhuru revealed his Jamaican ties in 2019
  • His younger brother Muhoho wife’s mother is the link between the first family and Jamaica

In a statement that was more convoluted than it was strange, Mr.Kenyatta told his hosts that he has a connection with the country saying; “I can confirm given the fact that my wife’s brother’s mother comes from Jamaica and lived all her life in Kenva.”

This statement was confusing because the President was, in so many words, saying his mother-in-law is Jamaican which resulted in Mr.Kenyatta being trolled by Kenyans on Twitter .

However, it appears the President just jumbled his words as we have learnt that his brother Muhoho Kenyatta’s wife’s mother is the link between the First family and Jamaica.

Mama Norma Florienta Kanja who died on Wednesday, August 16 2018, was mother-in-law to President Kenyatta’s younger brother,Muhoho.

She was wife of the late Jimmy Kanja.

According to obituary kenya, Norma, 83, was the daughter of the late Rupert and the late Loretta Forbes, sister of Valerie Afflick, the late Doreen Nesbitt, and the late Carlton Forbes of Kingston, Jamaica.

In his tribute to Norma after her death, President Kenyatta mourned her as “a wonderful human being.”

“As we have all heard, she was a wonderful human being and we can testify to that fact. Mama Norma Kana lived her life well and has left an enduring legacy which should be emulated,” President Kenyatta said.

“We stand in solidarity with you during this trying and difficult time of mourning.

Our thoughts and prayers will always be with you.”

So, it looks like the President knew his facts except he juggled his words.
