They then proceeded to make several turns within the State House tarmac.
But none of them wore a safety belt.
ALWAYS BELT UP
Traffic safety experts advise motorists to “always wear a safety belt” in even for short journeys.
In December 2015, Kenyans expressed anger at President Kenyatta after watching a video footage posted online that showed him driving a vehicle without wearing a seat belt.
In the footage, the head of state was seen entering a car and driving to his rural home in Gatundu, Kiambu County, without wearing a seat belt.
The video, which was a promo of an interview with then Citizen TV anchor-cum-reporter Jacque Maribe, was shared widely on social media.
Kenyans were shocked by the President’s poor judgment to drive a vehicle without considering traffic regulations, despite his government’s ongoing road safety campaign by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA).
Citizen TV later pulled the story.
