A KBC journalist has earned praise after putting his life on the line to rescue a crippled beggar when bees attacked onlookers outside the Supreme Court on Wednesday afternoon.
As protester scampered for safety when the insects unleashed terror, the beggar, unable to escape on his wheelchair, was left unconscious after falling off from his chair.
Driven by selflessness and humanity, Victor Muyakane who doubles up as a reporter and a news anchor at the state broadcaster dropped his journalistic tag and rushed and single-handedly carried the beggar to safety.
Other onlookers only offered assistance after he had covered a distance. Muyakane was stung in the process and had to be rushed to MP Shah hospital for treatment.
The bees wrecked havoc on journalists, police, demonstrators and passersby as the Supreme Court judges read their detailed ruling on the invalidated presidential election results.
The journalist is said to have lost his phone on the process. Here is what Kenyans online had to say.
Joys Kimani said: "He lost his phone....I think we should upgrade it.I'm willing to send him something for it.I feel that he should not only be a keyboard hero. ...one good deed deserves another,".
Wilson Wahome: "The gentleman has a big heart. We used to live in the same apartment at 87- Kinoo.
I remember an instance when one of their Bible Study members lost her dear husband and after the burial the family not only disowned her but took everything they owned. She was left out in the cold with her few months old kid.
The gentleman gave her his unit, paid for rent and opted to go live a fellow Bible Study member, more so, they used to visit her every evening and assist her financially.
He’s a great man,".
Mary Wanja noted: "He didn't care about his tribe, social class,religion or his physical appearance. That's humanity. May God bless Victor. We are one people,".
Cate Kamau said: "I salute him but I hav an observation which might not b understood by many. What on earth was that guy doing there? Apart from the un thought of bee's,what if chaos erupted? Gow wld he had run? Surely in as much as we love politics,a lactating mum like me shldnt be anywhere near there with my bby,a pregnant mum like I was previously n most importantly a person who is physically challenged. I mean someone who cant run for their lives if anything happened,".
Janet Nyagemi notes :"Thanks to him I feel touched wish I could reward him but the reward from the Almighty is bigger than mine may he never lack,.
Peter Murima said: "This is a direct ticket to heaven. I was deserted and you attended to me. " When Lord I didn't see yoy" "I was the man outside SCOK attacked by bees on 20th Sept. 2017,".
Isai Rotich: "and imaging he didn't first ask him what his first name is? Kenya would be a better place to be without our tribal monger of politicians,".
