Mulu Mutisya's Speech that Left Former President in Stitches

President Kenyatta nominated Mulu Mutisya to Parliament in 1974 alongside the late Njenga Karume of Gikuyu Embu, Meru Associations (Gema), attests to his political skills.

However, much has been said about the political feats Mulu Mutisya who played political godfather to a galaxy of politicians and senior Government officials from Ukambani. He had unlimited access to both President Kenyatta and Moi. President Moi did not hide his fondness for Mulu. Mulu travelled widely in the country during implementing political deals for Moi.

However, it is said that the legendary never left any stone unturned whenever he took the stage to address the public.

It’s said that one time Moi visited Ukambani, he moved the crowd on stage with his amazing broken Swahili speech.

The legendary said: "Baba, wanasema Kenyatta ni hayati lakini wewe ni hayati kabisa. Nashukuru sana baba wa taifa kwa sababu uliahidi Kunya hapa ukaharisha, ukahaidi kuja hapa tena ukaharisha tena. Lakini leo baba vile umekunya, nataka nikuambie matako ya hawa mama wote ni maji maji tupuuu...”

This caused a stir online and until now it’s one of the speeches many will never forget.
