The young lady came up with the nickname on July 19, 2022, when DP Gachagua was participating in the Deputy Presidential debate. Mr. Gachagua noted that his new nickname, used by Kenya’s youth, opens up his office to the younger generation.

“It was not a bad name…it sounds melodious. The youth have taken to the name and it is good they are connecting with the country’s leadership in their own way,” he said.
