A travel vlogger by her internet name, Miss Trudy has been the talk of the internet after she posted a video ranting at the Moi International Airport.

The vlogger, who seemingly was on a mission of exposing the officers who blocked her from filming her content at the airport, said that she was to be arrested.

"Guys we are being harassed at the airport, I'm just creating content, and this is Kenya,  content creators have the right to create content, this is 2023, and they have even brought a police to arrest me," she said. 


It is keen to note that Miss Trudy actually broke the law.

The Kenya Civil Aviation Security Regulations 2020 59 (1-c) states that a person who engages in operating a portable electronic device is liable, on conviction, to a fine not exceeding Sh500,000 or imprisonment not exceeding six months, or both.

The regulation further states that a person who commits an offence, if he refuses to comply with a lawful order issued by the airport operator, on behalf of the Authority, has the purpose of maintaining good order and discipline at the airport.


The police in the matter of Miss Trudy had the right within the law, to arrest the vlogger and her team for filming without any authorisation by writing to the manager of the airport. 

Further, airports are among the government facilities designated as protected areas/controlled security zones, something that the vlogger overlooked.
