A man on Thursday morning chained himself on the guard rails around City Hall building demanding that he be assisted to meet President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The man carried a placard with the message to the governor and other politicians.

“Help me to see Mr President, Governor Sonko, Senator Johnson Sakaja MP Korir, Uhuru Tena,” read a message in one of the placards.

The bold move caught the attention of GovernorMike Sonko who posted about it on Facebook.

In the post, Governor Sonko said that the man had threatened to strangle himself if he did not get a chance to see President Kenyatta.

“Whoever is near city hall. Huyu jamaa ako hapo sai anasema kama haoni President uhuru sai anajinyonga. One word for him – (Whoever is near City Hall, this man has threatened to hang himself if he is not allowed to see President Uhuru),” Sonko posted.

In one of the photos, the man is inside a swanky office that looks like Sonko’s.

Kenyans reacted on social media pleading with Sonko to help the man see the president.

This incident comes weeks after a fifth year Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) Student, Brian Bera, tried to enter the State House in an attempt to harm President Uhuru.


Authorities said Brian defied an order to stop after he was caught trespassing into the State House grounds and instead drew a knife on a security guard.

He was however shot on his arm and later taken to custody.
