The confusion at Nyayo Stadium during Jamhuri Day celebrations was caused when the MC Chipukeezy referred to the award-winning sprinter Ferdinand Omanyala as Fred during the mock relay race. This moment of confusion was met with laughter and applause by the audience, as they were surprised to hear the MC make such an error.
Ferdinand Omanyala is a Kenyan professional sprinter who has won numerous awards and medals at various competitions. He has represented Kenya in various international events and has even won medals at the Olympics. The Kenyan public holds him in high regard, as he has achieved a great deal of success in his career.
The comedian's mistake was likely due to a lack of knowledge about the athlete, or perhaps just a misunderstanding of his name. Regardless of the cause, it was clear that the comedian was not well-versed in Kenyan athletics, as he had not heard of Ferdinand Omanyala before.
This incident shows how important it is to pay attention to the details when talking about a person's achievements. It is easy to make a mistake when speaking in public, and this incident could have been avoided if the MC had done a bit of research on the athlete beforehand.
