Embakasi East Member of Parliament has excited netizens after he recorded himself flying a plane.

In a video he shared on his social media platforms, the legislator is seen smiling and controlling the plane.

"Flying back to Embakasi East Republic with my passengers after a series of successful rallies with Baba at the coast," he captioned the video on Facebook.

By the time of publishing this story, the video had attracted 2000 comments on Facebook.

Facebook user Shamim M. Kisule commented: "Safe travels our MP. I didn't know that you are a pilot as well. You are a true icon to reckon with. Congratulations."

Jude Bob Lumumba wrote: "Congratulations Mhesh. The limit is only in our minds. For starters just enroll as a bush pilot and the rest will be history."

Another user Kimathi Denis said Babu is a president in the making.

"One of the brilliant minds we have. One day you, will take the seat of Baba and become the president of the Republic of Kenya," Kimathi commented.

However, not all his fans on Facebook had positive comments for him.

Atiku Benard said: "Unprofessional behaviour by the pilot. Just imagine a medical doctor allowing anyone into the theatre while operating a patient. I hope the aviation authority will pick interest in this."

United States-based blogger Cosmo Choy called for his arrest.

"Don't joke with people's lives. The pilot must go to jail," Choy wrote.
