When Attorney General Githu Muigai gave a live media briefing on Friday, there was a little detail in the background that has become the subject of an online debate.
The AG was speaking at his chambers to clarify that there is no vacuum power vacuum the country and that President Uhuru Kenyatta is legally in office.
But a hawk-eyed Kenyan noticed that on the wall behind the AG there were electrical cables were popping out of a shoddily done power socket .
I wasnt listening to what AG Githu Muigai was saying: I was watching the Insult to Electrical Wiring.

If you ever hear that there was a fire at the AG chambers and the cause was a “wiring problem” This is what it looks like. ASK JKIA
