Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen on Thursday excited social media when he shared a video of himself cooking brown ugali in the village.
Murkomen tweeted the video showcasing his culinary skills where he prepared ugali made mostly from millet, maize and cassava flour.
In the video, Murkomen is seen seated inside a dilapidated kitchen, kneading ugali on a three-stone jiko.
“Back to my roots. Showing the kids how to knit and knead black golden ugali. Alafu harers waongee mbaya (Let my critics talk),” Murkomen stated.
The senator went to tell his fans how the meal, comprising of millet, maize and cassava flour, is prepared.
“At this stage, you lower the heat by removing the firewood and allow the ugali to cook slowly as you turn it from time to time.
