Chipukizzy who has zero talent, no tangible socio-economic achievements, no academic credentials to his name, no history of fighting drugs, has been appointed to sit in the NACADA board.— Eric (@amerix) June 7, 2018

My mediocre questions what criteria do they always use in the selection of people in such caliber or they think he is influencial and can reach many people or youths to what extent do they want to win the hurt of the youths and what is the promotive factors to be considered— Josiah Mlai (@OngaiJosiah) June 7, 2018

Well, if Jaguar was there, Chipukizzy can be there too. Githeriman was the preferred choice but is unwell. Checked into rehab a few days ago.— Abu Daud (@RKI2011) June 7, 2018
