Hello Mr President.
There was never a dull moment during the former president Kibaki’s reign. Whenever he took the stand to give a speech we all knew the delivery was going to be lit.
The following are our top 5 moments;
1. Presidential escort (2004).
“Hata gari yangu naona inatoroka bure, mwambie arudi nyuma, ni pumbavu kabisa!”
2. Cattle rustlers (2005).
“Unakuwa na maana gani duniani ikiwa wewe kazi yako ni wizi wa ng’ombe, kweli una maana gani? Huna maana wewe, ni binaadamu wa mavi ya kuku.”
3. Free primary education (2005).
“Na kuna mwenyewe hapa angalau ni mama ama ni baba angali anajivunia kutembea mbele ya watu na hana aibu mtu kama huyo ni bure kabisa anahitaji kutwangwa makofi.”
4. Teacher’s discipline (2006).
“You’re letting this go down by allowing teachers to drink too much, oh yes, oh yes, when we see so many drunkard teachers in so many schools I am telling you, you’re educating our own nation by mistake.”
5. Campaign hecklers (2007).
“Ukweli ni kwamba wewe hukula pombe ati ndio uka… juu ya mtu wako. Hiyo wacha na mkule pombe huko mkiwa peke yenyu.”
