A man carrying a baby on his back suddenly appeared in the crowd of people present at the Taifa Gass Launch in Mombasa on Friday, forcing President William Ruto to end his speech.
Taifa gas was first released at the Dongo Kundu Special Economic Zone.
As Ruto asked his security detail to remove the man, he was speaking to the audience and giving the impression that he was moving towards the direction from which he was speaking.
"Wewe wacha huyo jamaa aketi chini, wewe keti chini hapo ngojea aketi chini, eeh aketi chini hapo amebeba mtoto kwa mgongo aketi. Utaniona baadae wewe," Ruto said.
This translates to, Let the man to have a seat and do so there. Wait for him to sit down. Sure, please allow him to take a seat there. He is carrying a child. I'll see you later.
The remarks made by Ruto caused the crowd to erupt in laughter.
He continued by saying that it is unusual to see a father carrying a youngster on his back in public.
"Ukiona mwanaume amebebeshawa mtoto mgongoni, ako na shida kweli so angoje," he said.
"When you see a man carrying a baby on his back, know that he has a difficulty, thus he should wait," roughly translates.
Ruto continued speaking after that interruption.
