Kenyans on Twitter (KoT) are up in arms after activist Boniface Mwangi shared a short video of drunk people in the back of a Red Cross ambulance.
Mwangi claimed that the ambulance driver and a paramedic were ordered by their boss to fetch their son and his intoxicated friends past the curfew hours.
The driver and paramedic’s sole purpose was to take the youths,at least five in number, home after a drunken spree.
It is not clear where they were headed or came from but while in the ambulance which should be used in cases of an emergency, the persons are seen playing around with a bottle of Gilbeys.
They are playing “doctor” with the bottle of gin.
The video is shared by a “b_njuguna” on their Instagram page.
