Public Reacts as Ruto’s Nominee for Top Position Fails to Explain What GDP Means

President William Ruto’s pick for Consul General to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Charles Githinji, sparked bewilderment among Kenyans when he stumbled over the definition of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

During his appearance before a vetting committee on April 11, Githinji erroneously equated GDP with a country’s total population. “It is the current population and the escalation of the population of that country,” he confidently stated.

Committee Chair of Defense, Nelson Koech, expressed his disappointment with Githinji’s unpreparedness after further probing.

Githinji’s gaffe on GDP prompted an online furor, with some social media users expressing dismay in the nominee while others sympathized with him.

Mkisii_mmeru remarked, “The people around rais (president) will embarrass him.”

Mr. Kifaki queried, “Si huyu angefanya research before aende vetting?” (This loosely translates to, he should have done his research before going for vetting).

OMatacho pondered, “Surely, how did we get here as a country?”

Mwalimu_sk commented, “Forgive him for his name has already been approved.”

GDP, the total market value of all final goods and services produced within a country’s economy over a specific period, excludes resold items and encompasses goods and services regardless of ownership. It serves as a key indicator globally for measuring a nation’s economic output and activity.
