The International Committee of the Red Cross(ICRC) has terminated the mission of one of its delegates following racist comments he made against a security guard at Lavington Mall.
The incident was brought to light by one Twitter user @YebeltalG who allegedly was at the scene during the Sunday evening debacle. He shared a photo of a man seemingly in his early thirties standing outside a car with the NGO’s number plate with the caption, “A sad excuse to humanity, an embarrassment to his country and organisation. Rude and racist insulting security guards at Lavington mall…shame on you!!” https://twitter.com/YebeltalG/status/1180820143166885888?s=19
The tweet made an uproar on Twitter after it was shared by @OleItumbi, the official handle of Dennis Itumbi, HSC who is the Secretary Digital, Innovation and Diaspora Communications at The Office of The President.
Irate Kenyans on Twitter went ham on the organisation urging for his immediate deportation by the no-nonsense minister of interior Dr Fred Matiangi who at the time of going to press had not commented on the issue.
The man whose names and nationality are yet to be identified was relieved of his duties by International Committee of the Red Cross on Monday evening in a lengthy post that the organisation shared on its official social media handles.
Kenyans On Twitter have lauded this move and commended The International Committee of the Red Cross for moving into action swiftly to see that the issue was dealt with.
