Published

A video of President Uhuru Kenyatta has gone viral after a cheeky Kenyan edited the clip to make the head of state appear drunk while making his remarks.

In the clip, Uhuru was speaking to the Kenya National Motocross Team at State House, on August 23, 2019.

The clip was manipulated to slow down the president’s speech into a slur, the stereotypical sign of being drunk that oftentimes is used by doctors and the police as an indicator of a very drunk person.

The original video was posted by Daily Nation on YouTube, from where someone could have delayed the playback speed.

“Just as much as we are developing our football stadia, just as much as we are developing our athletics stadia, just as much as we are going to do basketball and netball, we will also do an area for motocross and we will also develop an area for all sports,” Uhuru assured.

 

President Kenyatta also flagged off the team that participated in this year’s Motocross of African Nations Continental Championship in Harare, Zimbabwe.

The team performed flawless stunts for the president which left him gleaming as he showered them with praise.

Rolf Kihara, who is the captain of the team that is heading to Zimbabwe, promised to make the country proud at the continental event.

President Uhuru was accompanied by Sports CS Amina Mohamed and Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua.

When the former Kenya Medical Association (CEO) Amakove Wala received the news she had tested positive for COVID-19, she was thrown into a panic mode and worried about her babies.

To ensure her kid’s routine was not interfered with as she stayed in isolation, the doctor adopted the current mode of holding meetings online using Zoom to catch up with the young ones.

However, while documenting her experience on her a Facebook page, the medic could not hide her joy on Monday, August 3, as she finally came out of isolation feeling better.

Amakove was keen enough to also express gratitude to one person who played the crucial role of nursing her while she was in isolation – her longtime friend and househelp identified as Susan.

“I owe this lady my life. She risked her own health to nurse me. She endured stigma from neighbours,” she said.

According to Amakove, the househelp did not only nurse her but also counselled her children who did not understand what was happening to their mother and why she was isolating.

“She made all those concoctions that I had to drink. Thank you, Susan!” she said.

We have been through a lot the past nine years or so but on this, you have made me believe that good people still exist,” added Amakove.

The doctor discharged herself from isolation after 12 days of not displaying any COVID-19 related symptoms including chills, fever and muscle aches for three consecutive days.

“I am done with this nasty bug. I have gained my freedom. I have discharged myself from home based care,” said Amakove.

“I could not have done it without all your support. Thank you! I have been to hell and back. isolation is the worst form of human torture in my opinion,” she added.

Amakove was among over 600 medics who are reported to have contracted the virus while a number of healthcare workers have succumbed to complications caused by the disease.
