You know it is the season of spreading joy and cheer when a man of David Maraga’s stature eats ‘githeri.’
The Chief Justice on Monday ate the traditional meal of boiled maize and beans in Kawangware. He was spending time with the overjoyed kids at the Children’s Garden Home and School.
In a five-minute clip shared through Maraga’s official Twitter handle, the Supreme Court president is seen fielding questions from the curious kids as they enjoy the meal.
During the lunchtime chitchat, Maraga revealed that he grew up eating ‘githeri.’
“So you think we don’t eat food like this? This is what we grew up eating. I eat this in my home,” CJ Maraga told an unidentified woman who was holding a baby.
The CJ also divulged the need to share with the less fortunate in the society in the festive season, adding that the type of life such families live are never chosen.
Maraga’s interaction with the kids earned him praise from some of his 189K followers.

They are not less fortunate, they are fortunate to be eating healthy without the hustle of money…. I wish we can go back to the true meaning of Christmas “ giving without expectation and publicity”
