A New Zealand minister has left the internet buzzing after admitting she rode on a bike as she was going to give birth to her child.
The politician's partner and father to her child also hopped on to his bicycle and joined the lady as they both went to welcome their newborn.
Julie Anne Genter through an Instagram post explained that her car did not have enough room for her support system and therefore she decided to embrace the simplicity of a bike ride.
"Beautiful morning for a bike ride. It put me in the best possible moods," she wrote.
Imagine a heavily pregnant ready in labour to pedal her bicycle through busy roads just so she can get induced and welcome her baby.
In reaction to the news, Kenyan activist Boniface Mwangi, could not help but point out that this should serve as a lesson to African leaders who are accustomed to flashy lifestyles. He expressed his views on Twitter.
His followers, however, did not support his sentiments as they stated that Kenyan leaders would face a lot of danger if they even dared to emulate Ganter's actions. According to them, whenever a politician steps out, crowds often follows the personality therefore making it dangerous for them to pull such stunts. Others just dismissed the minister's actions as a pure example of a PR stunt.
