In Summary

  • A rare hitch occurred when a Kenyan soldier slipped and fell
  • The fall distracted  the conversation between the King and Ruto.

Amidst the fanfare surrounding the visit of King Charles III and Queen Camilla at State House, Nairobi, Kenya, a rare hitch occurred when a Kenyan soldier slipped and fell as President William Ruto welcomed the British royalty.

In the video seen by Ghetto Radio, His Majesty and President Ruto were walking outside the State House building towards the courtyard while engaged in conversation as the soldier was on her way to open the car door for the Royal couple.


However, in what observers and members of the public can attribute to the heavy rains that pounded Nairobi city in the morning hours, the soldier slipped and fell, seemingly disrupting the conversation between the King and Ruto.

Her colleague, seeing that she was in danger, had tried to assist her but she picked herself up very quickly and proceeded to open the left back door of the Land Rover Discovery ferrying the King and Queen for the former to get in.
