In the video, he belittled his driver and bodyguard, saying that they had to drive through the night from Nairobi to Migori because they had not studied as hard as him.

He explained that the pair would provide him with transportation to the Kisumu airport, where he would catch a flight to Nairobi before they drive back to the capital again.
