Taking a break off his meet the people tour of Central where he is urging residents to go out and register as voters in large numbers, in readiness for the August 8 General Election, President Uhuru Kenyatta decided to pass by vernacular radio station.
While at it, the President Kenyatta broke into a song, he sang a Kikuyu hymn and the video from the talk show on Kameme FM has gone viral.
The vernacular radio station which uses the Kikuyu tongue was broadcasting live from the Sagana State Lodge where the Jubilee Party leader is spending the night as he tours Central region.
Uhuru had been invited for an interview by the producers of morning talk show on Friday, January 20, but before the interview kicked off, the President was forced to sing a popular Kikuyu hymn while a guitarist did his thing by his side..
He sang ‘Ngoro Yakwa’ [Let My Heart Sing For You] with Man Nyari on the popular station and Kenyans’ tongues have been wagging since the video first surfaced.
Kenyans reacted with humour after the show ended, with many commending the president on his fluency of the Kikuyu language and also for his humble nature.
There was however a group that was shocked and angered by Uhuru, they wondered how he could afford to joke around while Kenyans are dying of hunger and the ongoing nationwide doctors’ strike.
