Baringo Senator, Gideon Moi, surprised a couple during their wedding with a chopper ride.
Videos shared by The Standard showed the Senator helping the bride and groom alight from his chopper.
On Saturday, November 27, Senator Moi surprised the groom identified only and Fred and his bride Lorna during his visit to Iten.
Senator Moi offered a chopper ride to the newly-weds as part of his wedding gift to them.
The Senator was visiting Kapkorpop in Iten when he stumbled upon the couple who were exchanging their vows.
He took pictures with the couple and their bridal party after they alighted from the chopper. The couple thanked the Senator for his generosity and he wished them well in their marriage.
The kind gesture by Senator Moi comes amid increased political activities in the country. Kenyans have accused politicians of pulling out all types of tactics in a bid to win their votes.
The politicians have gone out of the norm to portray themselves as humble, down to earth and easily relatable persons.
From donning aprons, carrying shovels and serving tea in village canteens, the politicians have perfected the art of deception in their missions to lobby more supporters to their side.
While some Kenyans applaud these antics, others term them as 'cheap theatrics'.
Homa Bay Township Member of Parliament, Peter Kaluma, was quoted as saying: "The campaign season is here with us, we will do anything to dupe you to elect us."
Kaluma was ridiculing former nominated Senator, Isaac Mwaura, after the latter posted photos of himself interacting with traders in an open-air market.
Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru, was photographed serving residents tea while engaging in talk. DP William Ruto while on the campaign trail, paid Ksh20,000 for an umbrella, much to the delight of residents who cheered him on.
Others such as Kirinyaga Woman Representative, Wangui Ngirici, were photographed getting dirty while helping some villagers dig a tunnel.
Kimilili MP, Didmus Barasa, who is known for political theatrics, surprised many when he was pictured roofing a house.
Portraying himself as a hard worker, the MP, a close ally of the Deputy President, has on numerous occasions posted photos helping his constituents with their daily chores including construction and farming.
Whether these theatrics will win the hearts of the electorate remains a puzzle that will be solved when the country goes to the ballot in August 2022.Politicians engaging in various activities in their constituencies in a bid to garner votes.
