Murang’a Women Rep Sabina Chege has defended her crying in public during the “Embrace” rally in Murang’a on June 14, saying it is not being childish.
She responded to a supporter who told her on TV that her crying openly portrayed girl child as weakling. Sabina countered her saying women should not judge themselves harshly.
“The Deputy President William Ruto cried in public. Did you say that is being childish? Why we the girl child judge ourselves harshly” she said during NTV’s “The Wicked Edition”.
She continued; “Crying is a sign of inward strength and not weakness. I cried because I am human and also I am not the first person to cry in public”.
Ruto in March 2013 while addressing faithful at Faith Evangelistic Ministry in Karen after they won the presidential election got emotional and wept as his wife Rachel comforted him.
The Maitu wa County claimed she shed tears out of motherly love and seeing people “go astray”.
