The Head of State picked Colonel Fabian Lengusuranga of the Kenya Army to succeed Timothy Lekolool who was retired President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ADC.
The paratrooper is among the most highly trained soldiers in the country, with their base of operation being in Gilgil, who is arguably more lethal than Lekolool, as he is a Green Beret.
However, on Tuesday, October 11, city lawyer Donald Kipkorir took to social media criticizing Lengusuranga over his marching skills.
In the pictures, Lengusuranga’s steps appeared not to be matching with those of President William Ruto.
As such, the lawyer suggested that President Ruto’s new ADC be retrained on how to walk claiming that he was walking like a villager.
He said Lengusuranga’s steps were not in marching with those of the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.
“President William Ruto should replace his ADC. All basic military training teaches how to walk: erect with chin up. And an ADC or Parade Commander must have his steps be in sync with the Commander In Chief. This Colonel missed basic marching drills. He walks like a villager,” Kipkorir said in a Tweet.
Colonel Fabian Lengusuranga, the new ADC, joined the army in 1999. He has served as a senior Special Forces branch commander.
His first assignment was on Tuesday, October 4, when he accompanied President William Ruto to Mathira, Nyeri County for the burial of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s elder brother Jack Reriani.
