A photo of Makueni Governor Prof Kivutha Kibwana carrying a child on his back has excited Kenyans online, with many lauding him for showing servant leadership and humility.
Kibwana uploaded the photo on his social media page, explaining he was celebrating the Day of the African Child.
“Today as we celebrate the #DayofTheAfricanChild, themed ‘Leave no child behind for Africa’s Development’, let’s all reflect on our contribution to make our children thrive and develop," he wrote.
“We all have to uphold child rights, advocate for them and most importantly protect them,” he added.
The photo has since gone viral in the social media. Here's are some of the reactions from Kenyans; Irungu Goko said: " If only you can be our president deputy awe Matiang'i."
Titus Kisangau noted:" This guy, Prof... We need such brains."
Njeru Fab Martin commented: "Kudos mheshimiwa. Great show not forgetting you are a professor. Ingine huku embu ata sijui ilisomea wapi, one of the big 4 agenda is supplying panties to women."
Douglas Waweru Maina said: "Power has not changed the good professor of law. I still recall how at UoN he used to carry his law books and notes in a kiondo."
Eric Kitheka Koti said: " In June last year @bomas of Kenya I saw you arranging chairs for the visitors even without your body guards and I was very touched by your humility&humbleness Mr Governor, may God bless you."
Njoroge Wa Njeri noted: "Message driven direct home... You are doing a good job. How I wish all the other governors would do the same. You and Dt Mating'i should team up and lead Kenya in 2022."
Simon Odhiambo Gundi noted: "My governor. I have never regretted transferring my vote from Homa Bay County to Makueni county. My home for the last 7years."
Kimondo Wa Mureithi said: "That baby is kinda wondering,''You mean guka still remembers how to carry babies like me with a shuka?''
Jemimah W. Ruheni:" The kid is just looking at Prof. head keenly. I guess she's saying share your brain with majority Kenyans to think development in our counties and country but not just rooting and being corrupt.'
