President Kenyatta was on Thursday asked to name which of two popular Kenyan-made beers he preferred.
During a webinar hosted by the Atlantic Council, the moderator Katrina Manson told President Kenyatta that members of the public wanted to know what beer he prefers between White Cap and Tusker.
Katrina posed: “I want to offer just one question from the members of the public that has come in; which is your favorite, Tusker or White Cap?”
A smiling Uhuru responded by saying, "Without a doubt Tusker goes first but don't tell Kenya Breweries that."
White Cap and Tusker Lager are both products of East African Breweries Limited (EABL) and are brewed in Ruaraka from locally-sourced barley.
White Cap Lager is a pale lager that depicts the snow-capped peak of Mount Kenya. It is noted to be favorite of former president Mwai Kibaki.
On the other hand, Tusker is a pale lager introduced in 1922 and is the most popular beer brand in Africa with over 700,000 hectolitres being sold in Kenya annually.
