Deputy President William Ruto, in a recent church address, treated the congregation to a dose of repeated laughter when he lectured men on how they need to introduce their wives.
Before his speech, a Bishop had introduced his wife as “Mama.”
In his comment, the DP observed;
“Unapomwasilisha mke wako kama Mama, watu watakosa kuelewa kama ni mama mzazi au mke wako” ( When you introduce her as mama, people are left confused, not sure whether you are referring to your wife or the biological mother. )
He advised men to be a bit bolder and romantic by addressing their better halves as “My dear wife” or “My sweetheart.”
He said that using such romantic phrases makes women feel nice, loved, and appreciated.
