President awards man for making MPs drunk

20 April 2016, 10:04

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday awarded Parliament’s barman for exemplary service to lawmakers.

Andrew Gicheha, who has allegedly served Parliament for 33 years, received the Head of State Commendation (Civilian Division) award from Senate Speaker Ekwee Ethuro.

Gicheha began his career at Parliament as a waiter and later rose to the ranks of bartender, a position he held until 2014 when he retired.

According to Daily Nation, Gicheha’s favourite patrons in his long service include President Uhuru Kenyatta, former President Mwai Kibaki and the late Cabinet Minister John Michuki.

The 57-year-old barman also confessed that he comes from the same location as President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Three senators, two MPs and six long-serving staff of the Senate and National assembly were also awarded for their service, Standard Digital reports.
