Rugby player Dennis Ombachi is on holiday and doing what most Kenyans love to do - swimming. However, one tiny detail about his time in the pool has amused Kenyans on Twitter.

The father of two appears to fail miserably while attempting to swim.

Here are reactions from KOT about his failed attempt to swim:

@iddrriss__Ombachi’s son looking at the person who was teaching him how to swim actually swim 😭😭😭

@footsoldierRow Did we misinterpret the tweet, like he’s just depicting what lack of progress looks like. Because if he can’t swim why was he throwing in the baby!!!! 🤯

@ituriuE Dare you practising swimming or drowning? 🫢

@JamieSirMugo You can't dance you can't swim😂😂😂 Lakini at least you can cook

@timothymathai Ombachi swimming but still stationary is my funny video of the week 😂😂😂😂😂

@Ednah___Aliingia underwater just to get stuck at one spot 🤣

@babji_elimelech Such things happen kwa dream bana. A monster chases you, unatoka nduki vibaya sana but tumguu tunachanga tu hapo place umesimama hausongi, I wonder how he pulled that off 😂😂😂😂

Kenyans are now recalling a past video of the 'Roaming Chef' throwing his son into a pool all in the name of swimming lessons.

Back in July this year, Ombachi shared a video of his one-year-old son being thrown into a pool.

People were horrified, scared that the young boy could drown, but luckily he didn't.

In the short video, the athlete and famed online chef lifts the child up, and kisses him gently, before tossing him into a swimming pool by the leg.

“Four weeks since we started water safety classes and my son graduated today, officially water safe!” Ombachi gushed on Twitter about his son’s abilities.

Once in the water, the baby boy quickly gets himself to a floating position and kicks his feet moving forward steadily.

It appears that he can get himself out of a pool and even keep his head up to breathe after having been taught the life skill early on.
