Kenyans shared their views after a video of a newly-invented ugali cooking machine surfaced on social media.
The video shows the machine making the popular Kenyan delicacy to create one that looks exactly like the one prepared using a cooking stick (mwiko). A few Kenyans appreciated the invention but a majority dismissed it saying they prefer ugali prepared the traditional way.
Here is what Kenyans online had to say about the machine;
Musician Daddy Owen said: “First and foremost we don't need any more inventions when it comes to Ugali. Kudos to the creators but the biggest challenge to your marketing team is to convince us Luhya who to us that ka ugali looks like patco unless it can be rolling while I am eating the patco that was prepared.”
@Akin_Jude2 tweeted: “There's no way this 'ugali' will taste - as ugali does - after being electronically-masaged and pampered? Ugali 's meant to be 'man-handled' - in the 'sufuria' with a 'mwiko', whilst being cooked!”
@Avacrest said: “ Hio apana tambua. It doesn't meet the western kenya standards. Hio Ugali haijaiva😂.”
@Patrickmutisyas noted: “Utamu wa sembee ni harufu yake hii fiction mingi ni cancer tu...”
@janetmachuka_ wrote: “I am emotional watching ugali cook in this manner and the way l love cooking😫.”
@sylviakwamboka_ stated: “For those who don't know how to cook well their prayers have been heard.”
@godrick_ke noted: “Toxic masculinity can't allow me to eat ugali cooked from that stuff.”
