, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 20 – Kitui East Member of Parliament Nimrod Mbai has apologised to the Kitui Governor Kaluki Ngilu over his ‘call to rape’ remarks he made last month during a political rally.
He spoke on Wednesday for the first time after the remarks during an interview with a vernacular radio station where he regretted his remarks saying he has a huge respect for the NARC leader.
“Ngilu is like my mother and I have always admired her leadership. I regret those remarks and ask her for forgiveness; please don’t be offended,” said Mbai during the interview.
The first-time Member of Parliament said he will work closely with Governor Ngilu saying her track record is commendable and added that he will still support her governorship for a second term.
Mbai, who clinched the parliamentary seat through a Jubilee Party ticket, had been roundly condemned following the remarks although Ngilu has not commented on the issue.
