Kiambu Governor Wiliam Kabogo on Thursday 9th 2015 accompanied by his staff, the media and members of the public undertook to destroy alcohol that was confiscated from a manufacturer in Thika. This is following a one week ultimatum given by the president Uhuru Kenyatta to central Kenya leaders to deal with 2nd generation (ilicit) brew manufacturers immediately. Kabogo together with the County Assembly officials raided the illicit brew dens confiscating 10litres of illegal drinks in form of canned spirits and brown bottles which were hurled off using trucks to a central location for a spectacular media show similar to the burning of elephant tusks. Curiously, they doused the alcohol in petrol which they then set on fire. Predictably, there was an explosion which saw Kabogo flee the scene in a Usain Bolt like sprint. KTN covered the incident in their news yesterday night but Kenyans on Twitter came by the video today.
What most Kenyans online could not get over is how fast Kabogo can run. Check out the reactions from Kenyans on Twitter below.
