Police Officer Turns Down Gift From NRG Radio Presenter (VIDEO)

The jovial radio queen boldly shot her shot by approaching the officer with the flower in her hand with hopes that he will accept it.

A radio presenter's attempt to gift a traffic police officer in Nairobi CBD ahead of Valentines' Day on Sunday, February 14 backfired in full view of other motorists.

A video seen by Viral Tea showed NRG Radio presenter Natalie Githinji seeking to gift the officer manning traffic along the Kenyatta Avenue, Uhuru Highway Roundabout a flower on Friday, February 12.

Meanwhile, other passengers in the vehicle filmed the proceedings. The officer dramatically turned down her gift, seemingly expressing his disinterest.

Githinji could be seen questioning as to why the officer did not accept her gift. 

The public servant, clearly undeterred over handing Githinji the rejection card, carried about his business while talking on his walkie-talkie.

He then proceeded to do as per his normal duty, directing vehicles on the roundabout to proceed.

To salvage what was a failed attempt, Githinji gave the rose to a pillion passenger on a bodaboda, who gladly accepted.

She took to her Instagram account in reaction to the incident, clearly disappointed by the apparent lack of humanity amongst the officers.

"I thought makarao wanapendeka (I thought police officers are lovable) he just let me down," she stated.

Public displays of affection are common in Nairobi and attract audiences and conversations. A woman in a video that surfaced on Thursday, November 26, 2020, stunned a crowd at Nairobi CBD after turning down a marriage proposal from her boyfriend.

The man was on his knees, completely devastated as he watched his plan to propose to his girlfriend in public go up in flames. The actors in the clip later addressed that it was a staged stunt.
