Baringo Senator Gideon Moi’s was the talk of the town after a hilarious speech during Moi’s memorial service.
Gideon described how his late father loved meat and not even a doctor could come in between his love for the delicacy.
However, he made a grammatical blunder by not pronouncing Swahili words correctly.
While referring to how the doctor had cautioned Moi against eating meat, Gideon kept saying doctari instead of daktari.
“Alikuwa, hii mzee alikuwa anapendanga nyama, nakumbuka nilikuwa nanimueleza kwamba, tafathali Mzee doktari amekataa.
Gideon repeatedly made the pronunciation mistake by saying; Mzee akaniuliza, unaona doktari hapa?
Below is a video of the senator repeatedly making grammar mistakes in his speech.

A section of Kenyans have since then been making fun of his blunders, terming the word as a new vocabulary.
New vocabulary from Gideon "Doktari"😂😂

Kenyans were perplexed by an inability by Gideon to articulate Swahili words correctly yet it was a national language that is taught in several schools locally.
From his Educational background, Gideon has schooled in local institutions including St.Mary’s school and Strathmore school.
