Health CAS Mercy Mwangangi left residents of Othaya town elated when she showed off her dancing skills during a public address on Friday, October 9.
Donned in black pants, black high heels and a creamy top gracefully blended with flowery maroon spots, the cheerful Mwangangi wowed the crowd with a captivating waist dance characterised by a sequence of a rhythmic open-air single lap dance.
Mwangangi got down to a popular song dubbed ‘Kwata Kawaya’ which loosely translates to playing a guitar.
The brief dance by the Health CAS was visibly a health diet to the eyes of Othaya residents who were treated to a rare and unexpected beautiful scenery.
For a lady who has been known across the country to be a no-nonsense, ever serious individual, this was one of those rare occasions.
The 34-year-old medic has been a social media sensational ever since she started appearing on TV screens to give updates on the situation of COVID-19 in the country.
She is calm and collected, soft-spoken and full of beaming smiles whenever she addresses an issue or responds to questions.
Mwangangi was in Othaya, Nyeri county to inspect its level of preparedness to combat the spread of COVID-19.
The CAS explained that although the country was experiencing a spike in positive COVID-19 cases, there was no need for alarm over a second wave.
She was speaking while launching oxygen machines at Othaya Level Six hospital.
“Yes, there may be spikes here and there, but that does not mean we are in a second surge, because it is determined by a number of factors.
“These are factors we might have to review not in a period of three days. Perhaps a period of two weeks to one month,” she explained.
The country recorded 388 more positive cases for COVID-19 from a sample size of 4,287 bringing the national tally to 41,546.
61 people recovered from the disease, the total recoveries standing at 31,000. The death toll rose to 766 as six more patients succumbed to the virus.
Something you don't see everyday…
