‘Shakhalaga Khwa’ leaves Kenyans amused, again
Kenyans online found a way to amuse themselves as they sat through the lengthy announcement of presidential results by IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati, with the focus being on the pronouncement of the name of one of the candidates.
Netizens anticipated the moment Mr Chebukati had to pronounce Cyrus Jirongo middle name Shakhalaga Khwa, which always leaves some Kenyans on Twitter in stitches.
However, to the disappointment of many, Mr Chebukati this time around only referred to him using one of his names, Jirongo.
Here are some of the comments Kenyans made on Jirongo’s unique name:
