Arap Marindich arrested in CBD for whipping Tom Mboya statue

The arrest of Marindich has stirred a variety of emotions online.

Arap Marindich in trouble for whipping Tom Mboya statue

Arap Marindich, a figure who gained notoriety in 2022 for mimicking World Rally Championship drivers, was arrested in Nairobi's Central Business District (CBD) for attacking the Tom Mboya statue.

In a now-viral video, Marindich was initially caught on camera standing atop metal grills, wielding a whip as he struck the Tom Mboya statue.

It didn't take long for an undercover police officer, dressed in civilian clothing, to swiftly apprehend him, subsequently dragging him away.

Onlookers near the Archives building in the CBD recorded the entire incident while attempting to mediate, urging the officer to release Marindich.

The officer who apprehended Marindich clearly displayed discomfort with people recording him, and he issued threats to break the phones of those capturing the scene.

As Marindich was being pulled along Dedan Kimathi Street, he struggled to resist, although his efforts were futile due to being overpowered.

The enigmatic figure behind the iconic helmet meme goes by the stage name Arap Marindich, while his true identity is rooted in the name Kennedy Kipkorir Lang'at.

Hailing from Kenya and deeply tied to the Kalenjin heritage, he's a proud representative of his native roots.

Arap Marindich's ascent to notoriety was nothing short of remarkable, catalysed by a side-splitting skit he masterminded alongside his companion, Tula Chemoget.

Their comedic chemistry took center stage in this memorable production, one that revolved around an audacious claim: participation in the prestigious World Rally Championship.

In this whimsical snippet, the dynamic duo spun a tale of venturing from the heart of the wilderness, navigating treacherous terrains with fearless determination.

They emerged from the shadows of the bush, unabashedly asserting their triumphant arrival on the world stage.

It was a spectacle that straddled the realms of absurdity and brilliance, capturing the imaginations of countless viewers.
