Kenyans react after Nyong’o shows off his flawless Spanish – VIDEO
Kenyans on social media were left divided after Kisumu Governor Prof Anyan’g Nyong’o flossed his Spanish as he welcomed the first batch of Cuban doctors in the country.
The governor and his family was forced to flee to Mexico during the brutal regime of former President Daniel arap Moi.
Oscar Award winner Lupita Nyong’o was born in March 1983 in Mexico during her family’s exile there.
The Council of Governors on Tuesday tweeted a video as Prof Nyong’o speaking to the Cuban doctors at JKIA wth a caption; “H.E. Anyang’ Nyong’o addresses the Cuban Doctors in fluent Spanish as he welcomes them the into the Country.”

Many responded by wondering how Kenyan patients will communicate with the doctors who the government said will be stationed in the rural areas of the country.
How do you know it’s “fluent”?
