In 2016, President Uhuru Kenyatta’s eldest son Jomo Kenyatta had a colorful Kikuyu traditional wedding with his sweetheart, Fiona Achola setting the stage for the Head of Stage to expect grandchildren.
Since then, the marriage life for the two has remained private even though they are among the most high-profile couple in the country.
In 2017, it was reported that God had blessed the couple with a bouncing baby girl but in line with their privacy, no photo of the young girl named after the First Lady, Margaret Kenyatta has ever been made public.
In May 2020, Jomo and his lovely wife were blessed with a son, and as the first daughter, they have also kept him away from the public glare.
However, on Thursday, June 23, President Uhuru showed off his first grandson in public for the first time since he was born.
It happened at KICC during the flagging off of the WRC Safari Rally competition, his son Jomo had accompanied him for the function.
After the Head of State had finished flagging the drivers, Jomo walked to the stage carrying Baby Uhuru and handed him over to his grandfather and retiring 4th president of Kenya.
Uhuru’s grandson is a replica of his father who was dressed in a blue t-shirt, colored sweater, green trousers, a white cap, and black and white rubber shoes.
From the photos, the two-year-old appeared courageous as he bonded with his grandfather on the big stage, in full glare of media cameras.
Those on the podium could also be seen savoring the moment as they turned their attention to the young Uhuru.
The moments rekindled memories of how Uhuru’s father, late Jomo Kenyatta, would occasionally step out with the young Uhuru in public.
Photos shared online by Danito Kinyanjui on Facebook attracted a lot of positive praise from Kenyans.
