Police arrest a man for attempting to disrupt President William Ruto speech at Uhuru Gardens during Jamhuri Day celebrations.
Nairobi activist Julius Kamau was roughed up by the security officers as he attempted to disrupt the by President Ruto at Uhuru Gardens.
During Ruto’s speech, the activist dared to make his way to where the president was before the law enforcers on standby pounced on him.
His attempts however were unsuccessful as he was quickly whisked away by security detail.
The security officers handcuffed, manhandled and whisked him away to seclusion; all the while, the president continued with his speech.
Julius Kamau is not new to controversy as he has been severally arrested in public places protesting high cost of living.
He was arrested in July this year after chaining himself to a post as he participated in the Saba Saba protests in the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD).
“People are suffering. People are dying. How do you address this? How is the government addressing this? The government has become so inefficient,” he shouted then.
His arrest, however, rattled Kenyans on social media who demanded his release, saying there were no credible charges to his name.
