A brave Kenyan stood in front of an MP’s vehicle in Nairobi on Monday, to stop the driver from overlapping while in traffic.
The man identified as David Lemayian was seen standing in front of a black Mercedes, registration number KCC 600P.
In a video shared by activist Boniface Mwangi in the evening, Lemayian stays put, dressed in blue jeans, a striped yellow shirt and a satchel bag.
He then appears to lecture the occupant of the Mercedes about traffic rules while pointing at other motorists who were waiting for clearance.
Some took photos and videos of him.
The National Transport and Safety Authority web portal indicates that the owner of the vehicle is Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi.
It was not clear whether the MP was in the vehicle at the time of the obstruction.
Lemayian’s move elicited mixed reactions, Mwangi saying Kenyans should take after him.
On his Twitter page, Lemayian wrote:
“Arrived to Twitter to a lot of love. A lot of Kenyans tired of waheshimiwa thinking they can live above the law. This car belonging to a Member of the National Assembly was breaking the law. I would never ask anyone to risk their lives but I am tired too. #ActNOW.”
