In a video that surfaced online on the morning of Monday, May 18, the businessman is seen talking into a walkie talkie at an undisclosed location.
He told the officer that he had been trying to reach a number of divisions but all his calls went unanswered.
“I have found him bro,” a voice is heard on the other end of the radio.
“Tell him to pick up the radio and listen to it. I have been calling up to division 6,7 and no one is responding. All of you are asleep, I can fire you,” stated the tycoon in a seemingly angry voice.
He was dressed in a black beret and a black and white striped shirt with his face mask hanging below his thin.
The tycoon is well known for his controversies and never shies away from going head to head with anyone including President Uhuru Kenyatta.
On Saturday, February 29, the businessman tore into Uhuru in a hard-hitting rant as he vowed to block the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) meeting scheduled for Meru.
Kobia faulted President Kenyatta for being the main stumbling block in the aborted nomination of Ann Kananu Mwenda, who hails from Meru, as the deputy governor of Nairobi.
“Jubilee refused to give her a clearance certificate. That means the party leader, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, has rejected Ann Kananu Mwenda as deputy governor of Nairobi.
“He is the party leader and he is silent. He supports bringing BBI to Meru but when it comes to Ann Kananu Mwendwa it becomes political. I’m hearing that she’s Sonko’s person, why are they inciting people? Let them know we reject that BBI,” he stated at the time.
The tycoon has also had a run-in with the law enforcers especially when he got adversely mentioned in the 2019 gold scam that a Dubai national claimed he was conned of Ksh170 million.
Kobia was arrested alongside 14 other suspects at the time.
