Screenshots of the news headline by NTV are making rounds on social media leaving many in laughter over the choice of words in the headline ‘Kanini Fingers Duale’.

The headline was used during a bulletin on the rejection of a parliamentary committee report probing the sugar importation scandal.

Kenyans online were quick to question the use of the word ‘finger’ with some accusing NTV editors of probably watching a lot of pornography.

Mr Kanini Kega, the chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Trade, Industry and Cooperatives had accused Garissa Township MP Aden Duale who is also the National Assembly Leader of Majority Aden Duale together with Minority Leader John Mbadi of being behind the decision by MPs to throw out the sugar report.
