Former Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Miguna Miguna on Tuesday questioned the authenticity of some of the signs used by sign language interpreter Youla Nzale during the 6th Devolution Conference.

Miguna wondered whether Nzale was using ‘freshly invented’ gestures as President Uhuru Kenyatta was addressing the delegates.

“Is that legitimate "sign language" the young woman to @UKenyatta's right is using or those are freshly invented despotic gestures intended to mock Kenyans?” he asked.

As expected, Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) were quick to weigh in on the matter and it generated an interesting debate.

“That lady is using Kenyan Sign Language which incorporates facial expressions, hand & body movements. She is doing it 99% of how it should be,” wrote one Richard Mativu.

Miguna responded by saying: “The expression "Kenyan Sign Language" is not a known language or subject in Kenya.”

“Must you find fault with anything and everything sir?” asked another netizen.

Miguna: “So, I should say good is bad just to make zombies bleat?”

“She's beautiful and that's what matters to me hata kama anatutusi,” added another.

Miguna: “So, it is about her looks not her ability to interpret? The illogicality of a sycophant!”

“The lady is fine and doing her God. Hate the message and let the innocent earn their pay in peace,” said another.

Miguna: “When and how have I stopped her from "earning," Mr. Zombie?”

Elsewhere, a section of Kenyans was so impressed by Nzale that they urged the President to employ her in his communications team.
