The man has been identified as 30-Year-Old Daniel Wekesa from Bungoma County.
Daniel, who currently resides in Mlolongo, was seen shouting while standing on his seat.
After his arrest, he revealed that he was not shouting at Gideon Moi, but rather, he had a message for President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Upon interrogation by police officers, the accused said that he wanted to request the president to give him a job.
However, Daniel’s alleged cry for employment fell on deaf ears as police officers took him to Langata Police station for further interrogation.
