Nitakufinya memes Origin & meaning
The famous “Nitakufinya” video clip originates from K24 video archives on You Tube. The “Nitakufinya” clip was part of a broadcast which was covering a storyline about electricity theft in ‘Mukuru kwa Njenga’ residency in Nairobi. However, as the K24 reporter was interviewing Charles Musyoka a Mukuru kwa Njenga resident. An ‘unknown’ passers-by interrupted the interview. The passers-by is seen asking the interviewee Charles Musyoka why he is giving wrong information about the electricity theft. One of the response triggers him prompting him to warn the interviewee with the word “Nitakufinya” which means ‘I will squeeze you’. Then Charles Mosyoka responds back “Nifinye” which means squeeze me.
Unfortunately the clip ended when the reporter realised it’s getting. We don’t really know what happened after the interview. But it seems the guy was really serious and meant it.
