Waititu speaks on his mastery of English – VIDEO – Nairobi News



Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has come out to defend his fluency in English, rubbishing claims that he cannot express himself well in the language.

While addressing a gathering over the weekend, the governor said he is eloquent in English and promised to deliver 80 per cent of his pre-election pledges.

“Mimi ndiye baba yao. Some of you might have heard so many stories about me, some of them indicating that I cannot even express myself in English,” the governor said in a footage posted on his Facebook account.

“I want to promise our people of Kiambu that I will perform and try to at least make sure that even if I don’t achieve 100 per cent, that I deliver 80 per cent of the promises I made. I want to be truthful, I have always been truthful and real. I have always faced all my challenges squarely,” Mr Waititu continued.

“What I want to promise everybody is that Kiambu is going to be a different place all together.”

Mr Waititu has been the butt of hilarious jokes and memes on social media. Online wags have attributed many quotes framed in broken English to him.
