Lonyangapuo — I will perform on Churchill Show on one condition

By Standard Reporter | June 21st 2019

West Pokot Governor Prof John Lonyangapuo is not only transforming the image of his county but also leaving multitudes in stitches.

His enthusiasm to serve his people and his effortless sense of humor have made him a darling of many, prompting some netizens to ask him whether he would be willing to perform as a stand-up comedian.

Meme creators have been having a ball with his rib-cracking statements and most have had good viewership online.

Recently, the governor appeared on TV for an interview and when asked if he was willing to be part of Churchill Show, a platform that showcases some of Kenya’s funniest comedians, the governor gladly accepted, but on one condition.

“If Churchill wants me, even now, all roads should lead to West Pokot every Friday. I have a hall with a capacity of 3,000 people. Or how many does he expect? 

"We will provide electricity, security, accommodation, audience, goats, chicken, and even honey so tell him to come and I will perform," he said.

Further, he told Churchill that he will find him deep in West Pokot because he is always on the ground to interact with his people.

Online, Lonyangapuo has become an instant hit, not only because of his personality but also what he is doing for his people.

Recently, he highlighted several projects he had started in his county, including adult enrollment in schools, buying maize seeds for farmers to fight food shortage and constructing a ‘peace school’ where children from areas rife with cattle rustling study for free.
