Former Jubilee party nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura has caused a stir online after a drone yesterday September 9, 2021 flew over his compound for a couple of minutes causing his security fears.
Taking online on his official Facebook page, the former lawmaker revealed that the suspicious drone flew over his compound for about 10 minutes.
“Today, the now famous drone came snooping into my compound at around 2:10 pm for about ten minutes. I don’t know who was behind all that but time will tell,” he said.
His fans and followers could not keep quiet about it, with many camping on his posts with various reactions about the drone incident as below.
Kamau WA Njeri: “Kind of guys who are sympathy addict, it is not the first time mwaura kusema hivi, 2017 alisema ameumwa skio na unknown and finally managed to get 678 votes out of 200k registered voters🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣”
Eric Shem: “The only things that can fly over his house ni NZI Tu. How a NOMINATED MP (who is chasing a 3rd nomination) overrates himself puzzles everyone.”
Erik Omondi Ogutu: “Why should somebody bother with Isaac Mwaura.he can’t vie for a political seat and as his norm ,he’ll wait to be nominated.wacha kutudanganya na mambo ya drone alaaaa”
Jon Athan: “Hahaaaaa….this TangaTanga guys like making noise over nothing! If the state wants to spy on you, there are many better ways! Wacheni kustress wakenya!”
Mca Kamau Simon: “sasa watoto wa matajiri wakitest science projects zao wewe unasema watu wanataka kukuua. Tuko CBC sasa, lazima tufanye maneno practically. Kweli hustler ni hustler tu. Anyway ngojea nomination ya Women rep sasa.”
Ben Mluhya-Origi: “Nkt…you can trust me it’s a kid playing with it…no one on this earth is interested in you..not even LIGURU . village elder”
Martin Timo: “How many houses did it fly over before reaching your place and after leaving your place? Only suspects are worried”
Mwaura becomes the third politician to cry foul of drones hovering over their homes after Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana and Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen made similar complaints in November, last year.
Asimilar incident also sparked a public outrage earlier this year in April leading to the arrest and charging of a Briton who was accused of flying a drone over Deputy President William Ruto’s Karen home.
Piotr Lukasz Litwiniuk was charged with importing an unmanned aircraft system without a permit and authorisation from the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA).
The move made the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) to outline new regulations regarding drone operation within the country.
The Authority permits Kenyan citizens, businesses and government agencies to own drones, and operate them anywhere within the County, after registering with the authority at a fee of Ksh3,000.
On the other hand, foreigners are not allowed to have or operate a drone, leaving them with an option to lease them locally after making a formal request with KCAA, and granted a 30-day permit at a fee of Ksh20,000.
“Equally drone ownership cannot be transferred without the approval of KCAA. The purpose of the machine and risk to public safety and security form the basis for consideration by the Authority in registering, issuing of approvals and authorizations for operations,” KCAA says in its regulations.
