Kenyatta's Bodyguard Raises Eyebrows With His 'Fake Hand'


An image of one of President Uhuru Kenyatta's bodyguards with what appeared to have been a fake arm has elicited much speculation among Kenyans.

His strange pose, as he stood next to the president, during Wednesday's Jamhuri Day celebrations in Nairobi has led to much speculation that he was wearing a prosthetic arm keep his finger on the trigger of his concealed firearm.

The stiff-looking security guard, in navy blue suit and dark sun glasses, had a glove on one of his left hand when the President was interacting with the public during Wednesday's Jamhuri Day celebrations at the Nyayo National Stadium.


In the viral photo, he is standing slightly behind the president, who is waving to a cheering crowd behind a steel rail guards.

Other suit clad bodyguards are meanwhile standing right next to the rail guards while facing the crowd.

A somewhat similar photo has previously been shared online of a Secret Service agent with what appears to be prosthetic arms standing behind US President Donald Trump and his wife First Lady Melania Trump.
