|Authors||:||Dr. Reginald Maudlin Nalugala|
Abstract: One of the top trade mark advertisements on Kenya radio and mainstream television stations has been about this woman from Kano Plains, Kisumu County crying to the government for help. Floods had wreaked havoc on her village in April, 2012. Her property had been destroyed, she could not trace her children and husband. She famously cried out, ‗Serikali tafadhali saidia,' ‗Please the government help'. Her state of helplessness, sorrow and tragedy was later turned into national humour. She became known as ‗Serikali Saidia' in most social media groups and on television. She managed to find part of her family. The Kisumu County government appointed her the county flood preparedness ambassador under the department of Special Programmes.
