TV anchor Lulu Hassan impresses with her fluent Gikuyu – VIDEO

Citizen TV Swahili news anchor Lulu Hassan has left her fans mesmerised after conversing with a colleague at work in fluent Gikuyu.

Lulu, a mother of three, shared a video of her Gikuyu interview with Inooro TV anchor Muthoni wa Mukiri inside Inooro studios.

Muthoni asked Lulu what surprise she gave her husband TV anchor Rashid Abdalla on Valentine’s Day.

Lulu then answered in fluent Gikuyu that she cooked for him.

Muthoni probed further on the type of food she cooked and whether it included chapati and waru.

She responded that she cooked pilau, a favourite dish for most coastal people.

“Thikû ici ndî mbere ta mûhuko wa cati. #straightoutashags,” wrote Lulu alongside the video.

Her fans were amazed at her command of Gikuyu, with some claiming her for their own.
