After spending more than two hours in a standing position and doing nothing else but reading a long speech as he delivered the 8th State of the Nation Address today on November 30th, President Uhuru Kenyatta sparked laughter in the National Assembly Chambers as he hinted that he was nearing a breaking point.
The president who had just concluded touching on how his administration has facilitated more than 12,000 schools secure their own title deeds as compared to the 4,900 schools that had the same as of 2015 took a moment to pause and try to regain his energy before proceeding.
Then as he tried to regained that energy, he skimmed through his remaining speech just to see how much longer he might probably be standing and reading.
He also decided to let his audience know that he was feeling tired and in a low tone, he was heard saying more of to himself that "najaribu kukatakata jameni. Hata mimi nimechoka."
He was however overheard by the legislators and they broke into laughter right away. Of course he was heard laughing too.
Then upon getting back to official business, his next words were even more hilarious. That "Honorable Speakers and Honourable Members, let me conclude my address by speaking about..."
Before he could proceed, he was disrupted by the legislators that had broken into a bigger laughter and he also joined them once again.
After things subsiding, he went ahead to speak on his "handshake" with Raila Odinga which he said fell under "the fourth frame" that guided him in his journey and which played a big role in "political stabilization"
Watch him spark laughter at minute 3:43:00 of the video in the link below.
