Kibaki’s grandson comes to the ‘rescue’ of Uhuru’s son
Former President Mwai Kibaki’s grandson Sean Kibaki has applauded President Uhuru Kenyatta’s son Muhoho Kenyatta for being able to deliver the speech in Kiswahili.
Through a tweet that he shared, Sean said public speaking is never easy, saying Muhoho was able to at least do it – although speaking in a language that he may not be well conversant with due to his upbringing.
Muhoho gave the speech, which has since gone viral, during a political rally in Nandi County. He read the speech from his smartphone with a deep accent.
The President’s second born son had to cram parts of his speech which he repeated when called upon by the Deputy President William Ruto to address a crowd at a stop over.
He kept fidgeting during his road side address while receiving cues from the DP to remind him of his brief speech.
Public speaking is never easy, at least he did it well. https://t.co/3Fhgn7IYuJ

Kibaki’s grandson tweet elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans on Twitter, with some maintaining their stand that it was indeed not right that he was struggling with his country’s first language.
Shame on him

True. Public Speaking is an uphill task. Plus he’s not used to it.
