A daring thief attempted to steal from Garissa Township MP Aden Duale during a political rally in Garissa County.
The former National Assembly Majority Leader was addressing a gathering in the Somali language when he sensed that someone was trying to get into his pockets.
In 23-second video seen by a local media house, the lawmaker quickly turned to see who it was it.
He tried to push away the thug and in the process almost fell from the stage and his pants slid down. Apparently, he was targeting the MP’s phone.
It took the intervention of his security detail to end the drama.
The man was whisked away even as Duale pleaded with the officers not to harass him.
He then continued with his speech.
