Kenya's First Lady Margaret Kenyatta outdid her son by speaking in vernacular—and it was brilliant

Muhoho Kenyatta was slammed by Kenyans a few weeks back for failing to have good mastery of the national language.

President Uhuru Kenyatta's son Muhoho Kenyatta caused a furor a few weeks ago after a video of trying to grasp the national language went viral.

In the video, Muhoho could be seen reading Swahili on the phone while addressing residents of Nandi County while on a campaign trail.

And it seems as though his mother and Kenya's First Lady Margaret Kenyatta has outshone him in style.

While officiating the Skip a Lunch Initiative Foundation in celebration of the International Day of the Girl Child in Bungoma County, Margaret excited the locals when she spoke in Luhya (a Bantu language of Western Kenya).

The first lady known for her fluent and flowery English spoke the local dialect, which were a few lines of common Luhya greetings, amid cheers from the crowd.

“Milembe swa…wow…milembe te, milembe mia," the First Lady stated as she broke out in laughter.

'Mother Tongue' : First Lady vs Son

Gauging from the crowd's cheers and amusement, she perhaps outshone her son, Muhoho Kenyatta. You be the judge.
