Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe is known to speak in a thick Nyeri accent.
From ” nomare and abnomare” and ” 14 are meo (male) and 8 are fimeo (female), Kenyans have been poking fun at Kagwe’s remarks since the first briefing in March.
However, on Thursday, May 28, the CS lit up social media with a new slang during the daily COVID-19 press briefing.
While speaking in Kiambu County, the CS was emphasized on the need to be careful as an individual in regards on how you carry yourself in public to lower the chances of contracting the virus.
“No one is immune and therefore it is everybody’s individual responsibility to protect themselves and their loved ones,” he said before sliding in with the slang. “Anybody can gerrit, you can gerrit, I can gerrit.”
Normally, when someone uses the phrases “you can gerrit’ they mean that a person is attractive sexually.
Netizens were quick to notice Kagwe’s newly acquired accent and came up with hilarious comments.
Below are some of their reactions.
