Radio King Maina Kageni has told off Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja for crying in public.Maina says although it is not wrong for a man to cry, he should not do so in public.

Speaking during the Morning Conversation on Classic 105, on Wednesday, Maina weighed in

"You cannot cry as an African man in public. African men have become so soft, so weak.When you start crying and your wife cries who is the leader? An African man should hold his emotions and wait to express them in the bedroom or the toilet.Your father cried a lot but you never saw him."

Further adding

"You are supposed to show strength to those around you.There is something so wrong about African men crying in public.Kenyan men are like Russian men, very strong. You cannot go crying out in public. It felt so strong."

Sakaja displayed his emotional side while speaking about the programme dubbed 'Dishi na County'.

The duo had attended the launch of the Nairobi School Feeding Programme at Roysambu Primary School, Nairobi.

"Your excellency, sorry," Sakaja said as he wiped tears off his eyes and seemingly tried to find the right words to say.

"Your excellency, ni uchungu ya hawa watoto," he added after he finally regained composure.

The President told the governor that he will do everything humanly possible within his power to end hunger in the country.

"I want to tell my friend Arthur Sakaja Johnson that I feel you. I feel what you feel," Ruto said.

"And as I said during the campaigns, we must eliminate the shame of hunger in our republic. And we must be intentional, we must be deliberate and have a plan on how to do it.”

The President added that the government has plans on how to grow food and curb hunger, saying the medicine to ending hunger is growing more food.

In this light, Ruto pledged that the government will enhance the school feeding programme.

Through Sakaja's programme, school children in public schools and ECDEs within Nairobi will use Sh5 to get free meals in the 2023-24 financial year.

The governor has allocated Sh1.2 billion peer annum to run theDishi na County School Feeding Programme.

The groundbreaking of the construction of central kitchens took place in 10 subcounties on Monday.

Completion of the construction is expected to take about 10 weeks with the first meal expected to be served on the first day of the third term of this school year.

The subcounties include Dagoretti North, Embakasi Central, Embakasi South,  Kasarani, Kibra, Makadara, Starehe, Roysamu, Ruaraka, and Westlands subcounties.
