A video of the former Nairobi County Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe is trending online and has excited a large majority of Kenyans. The video was him toasting with a bunch of friends including tycoon Chris Kirubi after being sworn in.
The jovial former Deputy Governor was teaching his friends a method of toasting her learnt while working in Australia. He said,“Okay gentlemen, I must teach you the Australian toast. I learnt it when I got my first job in the state government of Queensland. And this is how they used to toast, they have a wonderful toast and since we are all men here and there is no lady we will do it to the letter.”
He goes on to say, as his friends repeat after him: “Here is to you, here is to me, the best of friends, we will always be, and if by chance we disagree, well, F*** you, here is to you.”
