A boy who was hawking groundnuts in Nairobi has been left in tears after a female kanjo officer poured his bucket of groundnuts on the ground.

In a video that has since gone viral, the young helpless man  could be seen crying as he clutched onto the county askari.

A crowd that had also gathered by condemned the county official’s move for lacking sympathy towards the young man.

“Huyu ni mtoto mdogo,” one of the onlookers told her off as she tried to make some calls.

The video has angered Kenyans with some demanding Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja to control his officers to avoid such cases.

“Sakaja you need to do something on hawa askari kanjo,” the video was captioned.
