In September 2016, during a separate interview on K24 TV, Mr Ruto mentioned the word ‘my fren’ 21 times and while pointing his trademark index finger at the interviewer.

According to communication experts, the phrase ‘my friend’ is not so friendly as it is often used by people who are actually not your friends.

The phrase is also commonly used by a person who has either forgotten your name or is too embarrassed to admit they are talking about themselves.
