BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,31ST JULY 2018-Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala has asked Kenyans to find it within themselves and forgive him over the “go-to-hell” remarks he made while responding to calls to resign over death of 11 black rhino at Tsavo East National Park.
While appearing before the National Assembly committee on Environment on Tuesday Balala said that he was emotional when he made the remarks in Mombasa on Monday.
The remorseful Balala said he also regretted dragging the name of President Uhuru Kenyatta into the rant that sparked national outrage.
“As a human being I have emotions but I have a lot of respect to Kenyans and I regret and apologise over the remarks,” Mr Balala said.
The CS who was grilled by MPs over the deaths, said he felt emotional after his officers let him down by not preventing the death of Rhinos.
