Uhuru alisema ;

We thank God because it is a good day. We are here to keenly look at this. I have never gone for a Ngurario of old people. I was wondering where I would sit. I am happy that we are embracing our culture. Some of our lives are going wrong because we have left our traditions. We have embraced the wazungu culture and that is why our society is collapsing. People no longer respect each other. You think you are better than the rest. Some of you speak English but they don’t know where that language originated from. It is our responsibility to embrace our cultures. Kamotho I can guarantee you have married a hardworking woman because I have worked with her. She has done a tremdous job in the country. Use that enegy now to make sure Kamotho is smilling. You are getting married to a fantastic man. A man who cares for his country and to his people. With Gods grace you will live a long life. Kirinyaga people I have your debt but, I will build the road from Kianyaga to kibugu. We have a new contractor and in a few months, the road will be fine.”

Raila naye alikuwa na haya ya kusema;

We have come here to celebrate a traditional wedding. I know Ngurario because my sons have married Kikuyu. They have embraced the culture. The white man has tried to wash away our culture but Kamotho and Mumbi have shown that they still embrace the culture. It is very important to unite these people, Mumbi now has a walking mate and not a running mate. Most of you say behind every successful man there is a woman but What is a woman doing behind a man, what is a woman doing behind a man? They should walk one on one. They both understand life very well and so they will be happy. I know they will have a good life because they are mature enough to understand life. I urge all Kenyans to follow their example. Unity in diversity. Every county should have a cultural centre and that will unite us all as Kenyans so that others can come and borrow from the other. I will bring ten goats for the couple from Bondo.
