Chopper ‘exhibition’ mesmerize Nyeri residents as politicians fly into town – PHOTOS
Residents of Nyeri were on Thursday treated to an exciting show as politicians and cabinet secretaries arrived in choppers for the Madaraka Day celebrations at Kabiru-ini grounds.
One after the other the choppers landed at the Dedan Kimathi University grounds as locals and motorists stopped to marvel at the flying machines.
Interior Cabinet Secretary Josesph Nkaissery led his cabinet colleagues in the chopper show as locals struggled to capture the exhibition on their phones. Eleven helicopters including those of the president landed at the venue.
Other residents documented the rare occurrence by taking selfies with the choppers through the fence as members of the public were not allowed inside the landing area.
However, it was President Uhuru Kenyatta who stole the show when his roaring military helicopters landed at the grounds amid cheers from his supporters.
As expected, it was a fruitful day for local photographers who made a killing by taking photographs of the locals with the choppers in the background at a fee.
