Flashback Friday: Hilarious memes from Polycarp Igathe’s unique campaign strategy
By now I’m sure you’ve all come across a video of a certain politician telling Kenyans to calm down and not to allow their personal feelings get affected by results given by the IEBC after days after elections.
In short he said, msiweke hizi vitu kwa roho – elections are over and whether their favorite candidate wins or loses; life will have to carry on as usual – nothing changes.
And this is why we’ve decided to celebrate Polycarp Igathe who gave Kenyans a reason to giggle and laugh thanks to his hilarious campaign tactics. If you can remember – Igathe is the only politician who went all out to prove himself to Kenyans; by hanging out with mama mbonga, dined with street children and oh wait…he even helped out at a car wash. Which is hilarious.
Igathe giving meme makers an easy time
With him pulling stunts we’ve never seen before – I must say he at least deserves a round of a clap for setting standards for anyone looking to vie for any position come 2027.
Looking at what he did, I’m pretty sure there are those who borrowed a leaf from him, right! I mean – who ever try thought a politician would go all out just to be elected? I didn’t. But Igathe changed the game somehow.
Anyway although he didn’t do much convincing with his strategy – below are a few photos that ended up turning to memes.
