Swaleh-MdoeAlmost a week later and Njoki Chege’s fat-shaming article is still on the lips of many Kenyans.

The latest public personality to air his opinion on the weighty issue is Citizen TV news anchor Swaleh Mdoe. According to the media personality ‘Njoki Chege is right.’

Swaleh reckons the 80 kgs limit mentioned by Njoki Chege is still not enough. He quoted 70 kgs as the ceiling weight for any woman.

“I think Njoki is right because any woman who weighs 70 kilograms and above for me is fat – if you’d allow me use that word. You are not sexy. You are just a deluded big mama that needs to lose weight. For me, it’s not even the 80 kgs Njoki mentioned – I think 70 should be the ceiling weight of a sexy woman.” Swaleh said.

He was speaking in a media interview wherein he added that a lady who weighs over 70kgs has a problem.

“Those curves often get lost in that bulkiness. A lady who weighs that much – I would say has a problem. Even if your waist is like that one of a wasp and your weight is over 70 kilograms, you won’t have kile ambacho Waswahili wanaita shangwe.”
