(KDRTV) – President Uhuru Kenyatta has jokingly said that he will consult the first lady Margret Kenyatta to see if he will be allowed to marry a second wife from Kisumu.
Speaking at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga recreation centre on Thursday, the head of State joked that he may need someone to take care of him when he visits the region in future.
“Nilikuwa naambia Raila hapa jameni… Sijui kama mama nyumbani ataniruhusu… Akiniruhusu labda naweza kupata mtu ambaye atakuwa ananitengenezea mambo yangu pande hii,” the president said amid laughter.
Uhuru just said he wished his babe Maggy could allow him get another wife in Kisumu ndo akue anaenda uko more often 😅😅

The President was received by thousands of residents in his first public tour since receiving the BBI report with ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Kisumu residents poured on city streets to welcome the President together with his handshake brother. Pictures shared on social media show some daring residents even hanging on the President’s vehicle, a phenomenon no one could have imagined in the past.

The President used the opportunity to drum up support for the BBI report saying it is the only prescription to chaotic politics in the country.
He said that he understands some of the BBI proposals can be implemented without a referendum but there is need for a referendum to solve all the problems that the country is facing.
