Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has finally acknowledged he finds it hard to express himself in English, thus the many errors in his speeches.
Addressing mourners at a funeral service in Gatundu South on Saturday, Waitutu, speaking in Kikuyu, said he did not go to nursery school.
“I was a student at Dagoretti High School but as you know, I have difficulty in expressing myself English. This is because I did not go to nursery school.
I was one of the children that were being subjected to the test of touching your ear with your hand and if you managed, you were allowed to proceed to Class One.
But English is just but a language, of importance is what is in one’s mind,” he said amid cheers and laughter from the crowd.
He thanked his supporters for voting him and assured them he will work to make a difference. Last year, Waititu called for rivers to be moved rather than houses on riparian land to be demolished.
Waititu is among many politicians in the Kenyan scene whose communication skills are wanting, the only difference is that he admits his weakness.
Due to his constant ‘language suicide’ he has been a victim of memes doing rounds on social media, sad as it may be the memes keep us entertained.
