Citizen TV anchor Jeff Koinange’s latest news bulletin has Kenyans abuzz.
If you are still not abreast with the celebrated anchor’s Sunday Live bulletin last night, here is a brush-up. During the live newscast, Koinange uncharacteristically struggled to read from the autocue. He had multiple pauses and looked albeit restless, and viewers were quick to make the discernment.

Koinange’s fluffing and forgetting obvious names has the internet in a meltdown, and understandably so. He is famed for his sheer articulation and speech prowess and ease to captivate audiences, and last night was an exception from that.
From people ridiculing the anchor to others suggesting there is more to it than meets the eye, it is an absolute array of mixed reactions. Here are a few tweets:
