Moment of anger when a hippopotamus destroys a motorcycle in Gilgil

The video sparked reactions on X, with some wondering how the crowds of people watching from a distance underestimated how fast hippos can be.

“Do those spectators trust their leg speed?” one asked.

“He had a whole motorcycle in his mouth… damn!” said another.

“It’s too aggressive. How he is destroying that motorcycle,” another user agreed.

“How do you explain that to your insurance?” asked one user.

“Utaelezeaje accident insurance haikuwa?” observed another.

“Enyewe hakuna mtu anapenda watu wa nduthi,” was another comment on the incident.

One saw it as a wasted feasting opportunity: “Hao wanawatch tu supu ikienda hivo.”

The exact location of the incident was not immediately established, but within the Gilgil area lies Kigio Wildlife Conservancy, right between Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha.

The Protected Conservancy is owned and operated by the local community.

White settlers used the ranch to raise cattle, but after purchasing it, the community turned it into a wildlife habitat.

The reserve is home to impalas, elephants, antelopes, buffalos, zebras, gazelles, elands, hyenas, hippos, giraffes, leopards and many more animals.

It is fenced with an electric fence to protect animals from poaching, but the eastern side bordering the Malewa River is open.
