Health CAS Dr Mercy Mwangangi excited a section of Othaya residents after breaking into a dance while addressing them during the daily Covid-19 briefing.
Donned in black pants, black high heels and a creamy top gracefully blended with flowery maroon spots, the gleeful Mwangangi charmed the crowd to the limit with a captivating waist dance characterised by a sequence of a rhythmic open-air single lap dance.
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.
Mwangangi was in Othaya, Nyeri county on Friday, October 9, to inspect its level of preparedness to combat the spread of COVID-19 when she chose to tempt her admirers by flexing her waist as Kwata Kawaya hit rocked the airwaves.
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.
Her fluency in communication and impeccable mastery of medical and health concepts related to the challenges the country is facing has made her stand out as the embodiment of beauty with brains.
Speaking after the event, Dr Mwangangi said that despite a surge in COVID-19 cases in the country, there was no need for alarm over a second wave.
“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.
Dr Mwangangi was born in Machakos in 1986 and attended Pangani Girls High School before proceeding to the University of Nairobi Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB).
Speaking during a past interview, she revealed that her father is a businessman and her mother is a lawyer, she further revealed her only sibling is 10 years younger.
Regarding marriage, a smiling Mwangangi said she is married to her work but has a supportive partner.
Mwangangi further said that she was not under any pressure from parents to settle down and start a family.
