President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday surprised Nairobians when he abandoned his official bullet proof tinted official car and walked from his office at Harambee House to the National Treasury for a meeting with a team of economists.
Uhuru will be sworn in on November 28 for a second five-year term after the Supreme Court threw out two petitions challenging his re-election on October 26.
The commander in chief who was in company of State House Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu and Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua was received by Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia and other senior government officials outside Treasury buildings along Harambee Avenue.
The distance between Harambee House and Treasury is about 100 metres.
A battery of security officers clad in suits accompanied the head of State donning a navy blued suit, maroon neck tie and a matching sky blue shirt.
The scene rekindled memories of former President Mwaki Kibaki in 2010 when he walked from his Harambee office to officially open then Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s office across the road.
