Thee was drama when a man temporarily stopped president Uhuru Kenyatta’s motorcade in Kasarani area Nairobi.
The man who was among several Kenyans watching Uhuru’s motorcade cruising through the area spotted the specific vehicle carrying him and rushed to stand in front of it.
Vehicles in the presidential motorcade were moving at a high speed when the man stood in front of one, and waved, seeking an audience with the president.
After a short conversation, the officer attempted to arrest him but on-looking residents protested.
The man was taken away by a police officer in Uhuru’s motorcade, as the other vehicles sped off.
This prompted him to let the man go and proceed with the convoy.
President Uhuru was on an official visit to Lucky Summer area in Kasarani where he opened an abattoir to be used for livestock trade.
He said that the Government will continue sourcing for new markets and expanding existing ones so as to enable farmers to sell their livestock at good prices.
“We cannot have a situation where someone has reared his livestock and when time comes to sell them they are offered peanuts, and because someone has trekked for long he just gives in to any price,” President Uhuru said.
Cases of breach in President Uhuru’s security have become rampant recently.
On May 20, a man walked to president Uhuru in protest during the launch of the Lamu Port.
After his arrest, the man identified as James Kinyua said that he wanted to protest the lack of jobs for locals in the newly commissioned port.
The president’s Ade-De-camp noticed him first as he approached the Uhuru, he moved from the president’s back as he signaled other officers. They then grabbed him as he shouted at the president.
