It seems the Kenya Kwanza team was working round the clock as Dennis Itumbi shared rare behind-the-scenes photos.

Dennis Itumbi brought in an aha! moment as he shared photos of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua (Riggy G) and an imposter 'Martha Karua' as they rehearsed for the debate.

Could it be the genesis of the famous Riggy G Mwakenya? Maybe.

"Hustler Nation worked hard. In between the Campaigns, we practiced for the debates Nothing was taken for granted."

His worthy competitor had to be in the scenes too. "We even had a '@MarthaKarua' whose brief was to annoy the then DP candidate @rigathi She did her assignment well. She even went barefoot - literally," Dennis wrote.


Is it possible the swearing-in also had a trial performance; Dennis should let us in.

Kenyans on Twitter applauded the dedication and commitment while others questioned the integrity of the debate.
