By constructing a set of appropriate matrices $\gamma ^{\mu}$ for the 5-dimensional Kerr-Gödel black hole, we attempt to extend Kerner-Mann's fermion tunneling method to investigate the fermion Hawking radiation across the horizon, and the expected Hawking temperature is correctly recovered, which is exactly the same as that obtained by other methods.
