Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has left his audience in stitches after cleverly evading discussion on his son, Kahush who was spotted in a house party that largely flouted COVID-19 protocols.
The CS said he did not have a son in his house who was less than 18 years old and it was only fair if “you follow them and ask them” about their misdemeanour.
Kagwe said this on Sunday, August 9, while making his daily briefings about COVID-19 while in Kisumu to assess the county’s preparedness on managing the pandemic.
“You asked about my son, I do not have a son in my house who is less than 18 years old which means they are adults, you can follow them and ask them,” he said to the amusement of his listeners.
A viral of video showing the rapper in the company of numerous friends having a party surfaced on social media and caused a stir.
In the party, the CS’s son was seen having the time of his life while dancing, taking alcohol and interacting with the rest of the revellers and none of them was in a face mask.
Ironically, the CS has been warning Kenyans against attending parties, maintaining a social distance and donning a face mask anytime while in public.
A month ago, who has always kept his family away from the media confirmed that young rapper Kahush is indeed his son.
The CS said Kahush is his last born son adding that his full name is Kahumburu.
“Yes, I know Kahush. He is actually my youngest son. His official name is actually Kahumburu. Somewhere along the line, Kahumburu became Kahush,” said Kagwe.
