President Uhuru was 'naughty in school', former schoolmate says

08 May 2016, 21:25 Scoop Desk

Nairobi - Kenya's Fourth President Uhuru Kenyatta was just a typical boy during his heydays in school, a schoolmate told mourners on Saturday.

Jimmy Kibaki, the son of Kenya's third president Mwai Kibaki, on Saturday during the burial of their mother Mama Lucy Kibaki left mourners in stiches when he narrated the story of a teacher who used to cane him thoroughly because of being 'naughty'.

He did not also spare the President who he said was also a beneficiary of the caning.

"I know even His Excellency the President can recall the teacher because he too knows too well about the caning he used to get," Kibaki said lifting the mood of the mourners from the gloomy silence to a laughter.When President Uhuru got his chance to speak, he led to more laughter after regretting that he has been unmasked."

Jimmy has told my school secrets, I thought they would not be know but now everything has been let out to you," he said amid laughter.

Jimmy and Uhuru were school mates at the prestigious St Mary's in Nairobi.
