Kenyans get cheeky with ‘unpronounceable’ name of Uhuru’s guest at State House
Kenyans online have taken their cheekiness to a whole new level after they were unable to pronounce the name of a visiting Minister from Mauritius.
The country’s minister for Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade Seetanah Lutchmeenaraidoo is currently visiting Kenya.
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s update on Twitter about his meeting with Lutchmeenaraidoo at State House, Nairobi attracted cheeky comments.

Some users termed his name as “botanical” and “too hard for any human being to pronounce.”
Other Kenyans online twisted the minister’s first name Seetanah and had fun with that as well.
“That name sounds like Saitaaan!!” wrote Gitau_boy (@Tascar90
Danpatins Mirish commented, “How many read that name in full “Seetanah Lutchmeenaraidoo”? me i didn’t . it sounds “shetani ……….xyz”
