Murang’a County Woman Representative Sabina Chege on Saturday took her time to remind Deputy President (DP) William Ruto that she is the hustler original.
The DP calls himself a 'hustler' due to his humble begins as a chicken seller, before rising to his current position of deputy president.
Speaking during Kikuyu benga musician, the late John Ng’ang’a famously known as John DeMathew’s burial ceremony in Gatanga, Murang’a County on Saturday, Chege declared herself the original hustler in the presence of the DP.
“I your excellency the Deputy President when you see today I am called the County Women Representative, I started far. As you are called hustler, I am the hustler original because I started when I was still a very young girl and today you have seen that I sang with John De’ Mathew. I was an actor in a program called Tausi and later met John DeMathew when I was a broadcaster.
"(Mimi your excellency the Deputy President ukiona leo naitwa Mama wa kaunti, nimeanza mbali. Ukiitwa hustler, mimi ndio ule hustler original kwa sababu mimi nilianzia nikiwa msichana mdogo sana na leo umeona niliimba nyimbo na John DeMathew. Mimi nilikua actor wa tausi nikawa mtu ambaye alikua wa michezo ya kuigiza, na kutoka hapo nikiwa broadcaster nikakutana na John DeMathwew),” Sabina Chege said.
DeMathew died on August 18 following a road accident in Thika.
