Kenyans on social media pounced on a photo showing a bodyguard assigned to Public Service CS Sisily Kariuki carrying her handbag right before President Uhuru Kenyatta was set address the media on Monday.
The photo which was taken by The Star’s photographer Hezron Njoroge elicited mostly negative reactions on social media with many wondering whether the carrying of her personal handbag was included in his job description.
Many worried that he might not be able to react fast enough incase of an emergency with his hand occupied.
Here are some of the reactions online.
