A photo of Public Service Cabinet Secretary Cecily Kariuki walking hand in hand with her bodyguard has caught our attention, and for a good reason. Cecily dressed in a sharp business suit is walking on the left while her bodyguard is on the right.
While that might be a security concern- walking close the side with traffic- our attention is drawn to her bodyguard. He is carrying her handbag. Whether for security reasons or maybe because the bag is carrying the whole weight of the public service docket is debatable.
During a past event, another photo on the internet showed defense cabinet Secretary, Rachel Omamo walking into an office block with her body guard who was carrying her bag.
Do the bags have very important documents in them that need state protection? Or maybe these security guards are just romantic? Though many Kenyan men would refute but there’s always something romantic when a man helps a woman to carry her handbag.
