Passaris attacked by handouts-demanding youths

Nairobi woman representative Esther Passaris on Tuesday escaped unhurt after rowdy youths on boda bodas chased her convoy.

Passaris who had been warned of the planned attack by her security team went on to visit Dagoretti North for a civic education event.

The youths had warned that if Passaris does not give them handouts after the event they would unleash fury on her.

True to their word, just after the event as Passaris boarded her vehicle, dozens of youths chased her using boda bodas.

The youths who were riding in threes and fours per motorcycle chased the convoy all the way into the city and the woman representative managed to get a photo of them.

She then narrated her ordeal on Twitter complete with photos urging youths to move away from the handout mentality.
