A sign language interpreter on Citizen TV  during President Ruto's media interview  Sunday June 30, amused netizens alot.

An interpreter is a specially trained professional whose job is to convey the messages of people who do not share the same language, culture, or mode of communication.

The purpose of providing an interpreter is to allow hearing, deaf and hard of hearing people equal access to information and interactions.

The lady in pink, furiously gestured as she kept up with the Presidents speech.

Many were wowed by how energetic she was plus her facial expressions as the President spoke.

Linus asked the President his view on the 12 year old boy who was shot 8 times and what he would tell the mother.

"Mr President, this boy took 8 bullets into the body of a 12 year old boy. What would you tell the mother of that boy?"

The Head of State responded

"That boy is alive right? "

Ageyo and Kaikai informed the President the boy died.

"So he's the one who died? So your not talking about the person who was shot with rubber bullets? Let me tell you, In Ngong, this is the situation in Ngong right? in Ngong there was an incident where the police were overpowered, by criminals " Ruto continues.

In another clip, the President was expressing his biggest regrets,  and she furiously kept along with his narration. 

The translator gestures harder and amused audiences notice her hand movements.

There were two other interpreters after she was replaced as seen on blog BNN.
