30-year-old Kepha Nyambane has revealed how President Uhuru Kenyatta mediated when he blocked his motorcade.
Nyambane disclosed that Uhuru ordered his guards to leave him alone before proceeding with the journey.
“He told his bodyguards: achana na huyo kijana (leave him alone),”
“He later promised me that we shall speak. The President shouted – ‘tutaongea, tutaongea (we shall speak later) – rolled up his car window and sped away,” Nyambane told the Standard.
According to area residents, Nyambane had planned by any means whatsoever to get the president’s attention.
He is reported to have learned about Uhuru’s tour the same day from his friends.
It was when the father of three quickly devised the method of winning the president’s attention without thinking about the dangers he could have faced.
Nyambane revealed that he had in mind an idea of conversing with Uhuru and maybe get a job.
“I was desperate to talk to him about my problems. I wanted to ask him to assist me to secure a job. I have three children, whom I’m unable to comfortably fend for.
“My sister took in one of my children. The other one was at home after being sent for school fees,” he opened up.
The hunk survives on lackey jobs such as working at construction sites among others.
Nyambane and his wife Lydia Bosibori have a one-year-old child whom Bosibori breastfeeds at home while working as a house help.
The man pleaded with Kenyans of goodwill to offer him job opportunities revealing that he has studied computer packages.
Augustine Nthumbi, Nairobi Regional Police Commander revealed that they took Nyambane into their offices for interrogations as required by law.
“He was only excited, and wanted to catch the President’s attention. Unfortunately, he chose the wrong method to catch the President’s eye.
“We did not take any legal action against him,” Nthumbi affirmed, adding that they will enhance the President’s security during public tours.
