Kenyans give verdict after MP Salasya fumbled on explaining climate change

Kenyans pointed out how Salasya struggled to convey his message

Mumias East MP Peter Salasya

Mumias East Member of Parliament found himself trending after an interview about climate change was uploaded online.

Initially, Salasya was asked why people had gathered at KICC, to which he explained it was due to climate change, emphasising its reality in light of global warming.

Salasya went on to share an example from his recent trip to Mombasa, where he inquired about the unseasonably cold weather. He was told that the sun's intense heat was causing the ice to melt.

"I think I was in Mombasa last week and it was so cold and I asked them what was not happening.

"They told me it's because of...ati jua imekua mingi, ice inamelt. Ikishamelt so nini inakua baridi, hio nini," Salasya said.

Salasya was then asked how he was championing climate change, to which he responded by highlighting his role as the representative of rural constituencies.

He explained that in these areas, many people rely on firewood, but he was advocating for more environmentally friendly alternatives.

"Being from the rural constituencies, they use most of the time kuni and now we are advocating for use Koko Jiko and other things like those ones," Salasya said.

Those who interacted with the video of Salasya being interviewed had varying reactions, with the majority calling him out for struggling to construct complete sentences while explaining his points.
