Uhuru Chuckles At “Kijana Fupi, Round Amenona” Phrase

kijana fupi, round

President Uhuru Kenyatta was clearly impressed by the “kijana fupi, round” phrase created by West Pokot governor John Lonyangapuo.

Soon after landing in Kabarak for a visit to ex-President Daniel Moi’s home, the head of state could not help but ask the county chief about the “kijana fupi.”

Breaking into laughter, the president inquired about the now popular phrase.

Lonyangapuo was in March referring to one of his critics, Dennis Ruto Kapchok who questioned why deputy governor Nicholas Atudonyang works from the United States.

“Kijana fupi, amenona round, huwezi jua tumbo ni wapi mgongo ni wapi, Mulmulwasi, hana kazi,” said Lonyangapuo.

Kapchok took this as an opportunity and started the “Mulmulwas” movement, which was being unveiled on Friday.

There was chaos as Kapchok’s followers engaged in running battles with Lonyangapuo’s supporters at Kapenguria grounds.
