Daddy Owen defends Kibaki’s grandson for ‘snubbing’ Raila Odinga

Singer Daddy Owen on Saturday defended late Mwai Kibaki’s grandson for allegedly snubbing ODM leader Raila Odinga during the former president’s burial.
Kibaki’s grandson was seen looking away when Raila was shaking hands with Kibaki’s family members.
On his social, Daddy Owen called out people who unfairly judged the young man subjecting him to social media trolls yet the video was manipulated.
“I have seen so many people trolling this young man on social media, this is the correct video that u can see clearly from this angle that the young man is shaking the hand of former PM Hon. Raila Odinga.

It is unfair that people have judged him all day yet he was avoiding the photographer and not the former PM,” he wrote in a social media post.
Owen added that social media people conclude issues before being keen.
“It is sad that on the streets of social media you can be unfairly judged by people jumping to conclusions.”
Apparently, the video in question is clear that Kibaki’s grandson shook Raila’s hands before turning away from a camera person who wanted to take a picture of him.

Kenyans praise Archbishop Muheria who saved Kibaki’s ‘grandson’ after breaking protocol

Kenyans on social media have heaped praise at Archbishop Anthony Muheria after he passionately embraced an emotional man who breached security and got to the podium.

This happened at the state funeral of the late president Mwai Kibaki yesterday.

Allan Makana, the man from Western claiming to be Mwai Kibaki’s grandson interrupted the State Funeral of the late president, Mwai Kibaki.

He walked up to the podium to ask archbishop Antony Muheria for two minutes so he could also address the assembled guests.

This was shortly after President Uhuru Kenyatta gave his speech.

“Allow me just two minutes to make a few remarks…just two minutes,” he could be heard through the microphone saying.

The Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Nyeri saved the man from being whisked away by the security detail at the event.

After calming him down and escorting him from the podium, Archbishop Muheria said,

“He is a son of our nation who is emotional at the loss of our president. Treat him well.”

After the video went viral, Kenyans heaped praise on the Bishop’s composure with the majority lauding him for the calmness with which he handled the situation.

Here are some comments from fans;

Dickson Ndirangu: The priest is such a wise man, the way he handled him with compassion, it’s clear that a hug of love can heal broken hearts.

Kiriungi Njogu Ke: The Archbishop handled the scene very calmly. However, he only saved the man briefly…. wherever that young man is right now ni Duru tuu…..I’m sure he’s even forgotten who he is by now.

Esther Muoki: He is a great man, full of wisdom and a clean heart.

Danielkiarie Njenga: The connection of both two is exactly the love of the Late president Kibaki that he had for our Nation without embracing and warming one another we might stick and feel abandoned it’s an act of the welcome of the prodigal son through embracing.

Anex Tush: Please after the young man is fully treated well by our caring humble police officers… We would like to see if still he can stand upright with his own legs without any assistance.. thanks as the treatment continues.
