    The discussion was based on school reopening countrywide on Monday, January 4, amid Covid-19 risk. 

    In a video seen by Kenyans.co.ke, Koinange, who turns 55, could not hold his excitement and shock as he congratulated his staff.

    "Thank you so much guys...It's a day early but hey.." Koinange said.

    The guests weren't left behind as they also joined in on the celebration.

    "We are here to celebrate with you," Ombajo said.

    Netizens took to social media to wish the charismatic presenter a happy birthday.

    "Happy Birthday Jeff Koinange, the journey you've gone through always makes us believe, trust and work towards what we've set our minds to achieve.

    “Always jovial, the man who got people in his heart. Live long Jeff. May this day bring you joy and happiness. Happy birthday to our captain Jeff Koinange," a section of the comments read.
