Uasin Gishu MCAs have asked their colleague Jenny Too to slow her English down so they can understand her contributions during debates. Jubilee Party recommended Too to the Assembly to honour her father, former Nominated MP Mark Too, who died a year ago. Too caused a buzz with her fluency and MCAs were tickled when Kipkenyo’s Hillary Rono interrupted and asked her to ‘slow down her English’.
“Her English is flowing very fast, Mr Speaker Sir. We are requesting that she slows down so that some of us can comprehend what she is saying,” he said on Thursday. “We would like to understand what she is saying, Mr Speaker Sir.” He added that Too should understand they do not have the same capacity to grasp the language.
Speaker David Kiplagat asked Too to speak slowly. “I don’t know, Honourable Jenny, if it’s possible that you slow down or something like that so that your colleagues can hear you clearly.” Too, a graduate of Daystar University, apologised to members and agreed to be considerate. “Mr Speaker, I apologise to members. My English can sometimes be very fast but I understand and will comply with the request,” she said.
