A video showing President Uhuru Kenyatta strolling on the sidewalk without his body guards in Nairobi has gone viral.
The video was shot and shared by musician and actor Pascal Tokodi who was in a vehicle when he happened to bump into the president along State House road.
An excited Tokodi is heard exchanging greetings with the Head of State before he asks him to watch the popular Selina show which airs on Maisha Magic East.Pascal Tokodi poses with his Best Supporting Actor Award on March 14, 2020.
"How are you sir? Oh my goodness, have a good day. Ona Selina, ona Selina," Tokodi says before the president promises to watch the show.
The video has been shared multiple times, prompting the Selina show to trend on Twitter. Some of the Kenyans argued that Tokodi could have asked about more serious issues like corruption and the end of curfew.
"Bro you only had one job “When are you stopping the curfew!!” But who are you?" comedian Dr. Ofweneke commented.
"President was minding his business strolling kidogo kidogo then Pascal happened," events strategist Chris Kirwa commented.
Defending himself, however, Tokodi narrated that he wanted to use his 15 seconds to ask something that would promote his work.
"Truth is, I asked all these questions but the camera was off. I was very happy when he said he watches Selina. I thought I would use my 15 seconds to promote myself. It is a very beautiful day," Tokodi stated.
It is not the first time the president has been spotted without his bodyguards.
In April last year, the president drove himself in an impromptu ride around Nairobi. He was sighted in his trademark black G-Wagon alongside four security vehicles that made up his convoy.
In February 2019, he was seen driving himself in Nairobi after he rolled down his window to engage a middle-aged woman.
