President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday, February 9, surprised many Kenyans when he decided to go on a drive in Nairobi on Sunday afternoon.
Uhuru drove himself from State House to Nyayo Stadium to inspect the progress of the preparations for the memorial service of the late former president Daniel arap Moi.
This rekindled memories from 2019 when the president caused quite a stir when he pulled up to the Holy Family Basilica Church, Nairobi all alone in the same swanky black Mercedes Benz G-Wagon.
Uhuru has consistently established himself as a president who is never afraid of taking a dip at the ordinary life. Having ditched his security detail in the past, opting to drive himself around.
Journalists present were ordered not to take any photos of the president as he arrived, with those who were quick on the shutter button forced to delete their images.
The Jubilee Party leader is quite fond of getting behind the wheel, often catching Kenyans unaware. On February 24, 2019, he got to experience first-hand what it was like to be stuck in Nairobi traffic.
Interestingly, he was pictured enjoying a drive around Nairobi CBD in a Mercedes G-Wagon.
The president was at the stadium to make sure preparations for Moi's memorial service were on schedule.
He had earlier on described the late former president as a great son of Kenya, a cherished brother, a loving father, a mentor to many, a father of our nation and a champion of Pan-Africanism.
On Saturday, February 8, Uhuru took some time off to pay his last respects to former President Moi whose body is lying in Parliament for public viewing, going on to state that he had lost a mentor.
