The video showed the machine crafting the Kenyan delicacy to create one that looks exactly like the one prepared using the cooking stick ‘mwiko’.

The majority of Kenyans who shared their comments, however, did not seem to take the invention with the seriousness it deserved.

Kenyans online were on Thursday, January 23, 2020, quick to share their views after a video of a newly invented Ugali cooking machine went viral.

The video showed the machine crafting the Kenyan delicacy to create one that looks exactly like the one prepared using the cooking stick ‘mwiko’.

The majority of Kenyans who shared their comments, however, did not seem to take the invention with the seriousness it deserved.


One of the people who posted the video, popular musician Daddy Owen, described cooking ugali as an art and the cooking stick ‘mwiko’ the painting brush, hence rubbished the need for a machine.

In the caption he applauded the creators but also mentioned that they would have challenge selling it to the Luhya community.

“First and foremost we don't need any more inventions when it comes to Ugali”

“Kudos to the creators but the biggest challenge to your marketing team is to convince us Luhya who to us that ka ugali looks like patco unless it can be rolling while I am eating the patco that was prepared” read part of Daddy Owen’s caption.

Other comments include:

Chris Kirwa - Chinese should never be allowed anywhere with a radius of 100 kms of Western Kenya
Ugali imepikwa na mudu strong mpaka kajasho kadogo kaanguka ndani ndio ugali original
Hii pelekea watu wa mashakura akina.
