A group of grey-haired grandmothers hijack stage to dance their hearts out


According to tuko.co.ke, before the start of the programme in earnest, elderly women donning long yellow dresses appear to be so excited that they moved from their seats and treated the large crowd to thrilling dance moves.

One of the old ladies is seen dancing with a small bottle of soda in hand, while another is also seen turning around rhythmically while holding a flywhisk.

Younger people at the event and the emcee could not hide their joy as they applauded the elderly women for entertaining them.
