Here are some of the reactions;
“Bado mzae hatatushow zile action plans anaimplement kutusupport kama youth! While the video is great, it could have easily been done by anyone as there’s no tangible evidence of what he’s done via his office and personal capacity to support the youth,” wrote Tabby Mwangi onTwitter.
“This is amazing!!! Whoever came up with this wow wow wow,” wrote Shi Kang’ethe.
“Aki hawa wazee wanacheka mayouths after realizing they have been able to lay a system that fools the youth. That he is a professor…so insulting,” wrote @Mwaurah.
“2022 iko karibu. Mzae antafuta support ya mayouths,” said John Ndegwa.
