A protocol blunder during the African Union (AU) Heads of State summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia has left Kenyans with many questions.
A clip that was shared on social media on Sunday captured two of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s aides in a mild scuffle with the guards who were manning the entrance to the main hall.
It’s still not clear why Uhuru’s Aide-de-Camp Lieutenant Colonel Timothy Stelu Lekolol and his Personal Assistant (PA) Jomo Gecaga were locked out.
In the 39-second clip, Lekolol, who was in his official regalia, is seen pushing through a crowd while trying to access the hall.
The Kenya Navy officer is seen talking to Jomo who was also standing in front of the door that had been locked.
Moments later, both men are seen walking away. From the looks on their faces, one can easily tell that the two were not amused about the happenings.
Kenyans.co.ke could not confirm whether Lekolol and Jomo were finally allowed in.
The reason for them being denied entry is still not known. However, some sources claim that they arrived after the delegates had settled in.
The 32nd Heads of State summit, which kicked off on February 10, will end on February 11, 2019.
