Kenyans were left in joy after the speech of young lawyer Ashura Michael at the BBI launch held at the Bomas of Kenya. The advocate, who is deaf and dumb, made her speech through use of sign language. She left the audience in stitches after asking President Uhuru Kenyatta to marry her since he had announced that he was looking for a second wife.
Ashura also asked Deputy President William Ruto to be their best man at their wedding. She went ahead to ask the commander in chief to pay the dowry to opposition chief Raila Amollo Odinga. Her funny speech comes in the backdrop of Uhuru’s speech in Kisumu last week.
The head of state told the gathering in Kisumu that he would consult the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta to allow him get a second wife from the lakeside city. This announcement seemingly necessitated Ashura’s request. Ashura also called on the political class to create spaces for the persons living with disability.
She asked county governors to consider appointing the disable as their deputies. She also called on additional representative positions for the disadvantaged group.
