Government Spokesperson Cyrus Oguna has downplayed remarks that the security of President Uhuru Kenyatta is under threat after a man intercepted his motorcade in Lucky Summer, Nairobi.

In a statement posted on his Twitter handle, Oguna says the incident should not be misconstrued as a security lapse since the man was only excited to see the president.

"The individual is a citizen who was only excited to see the motorcade His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta. We wish to allay any fears that the President's security was under threat," he said.

His comments on the incident came after a video of the incident went viral on social media with a section of Kenyans alluding it was a major threat to the President's safety.

It followed another drama witnessed during the launch of Lamu port where a man attempted to accost President Uhuru while he was addressing at the function.

These two incidences made a section of Kenyans worried that the president's security detail could be sleeping on their job.
