Dr. Alfred Mutua, Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs, traveled to South Korea with President William Ruto's team.
Dr. Mutua was eager to use his trip to Seoul to promote cultural diplomacy by teaching a little Tae Kwon Do.
Dr. Mutua was invited by Dr. Park Jim, the minister of foreign affairs of South Korea, to the world headquarters of tae kwon (Kikkuwon), where Grandmaster Lee conferred on me the honorary rank of 6th Dan Black Belt.
Through his Twitter Account, Dr. Mutua admitted that he participated in the sport while he was in his late 20s."In my late teens & early 20’s I practiced Tae Kwondo before picking up Temple Kungfu. I need to get back to the sport. I’m getting rusty. As they say, like father like son, I am proud of the fact that my 1st born son, 2 weeks ago, qualified as a black belt holder in Tae Kwondo," Dr. Mutua tweeted.
He added."It was fun to participate in a few polite Tae Kwondo demonstrations at the home of the art. Thank you the great people of Korea for this gift to the world".
The post made by Mutua has sparked outrage among Kenyans, who have responded in a variety of ways, some of which have praised Mutua for his impressive abilities. Verify the replies;
