I want to apologize to Kenyans for my behavior at the Mombasa International Airport,”
I know I might have gone about it the wrong way. I was just standing up for my rights, but I was mad and heated at the time, and I should have been more classy in how I carried myself.”said Miss Trudy, also known as Gertrude Njeri, in a YouTube video addressing the incident.
Miss Trudy had faced off with airport authorities who had stopped her from filming her content within the premises.

While admitting her mistake, Miss Trudy also expressed her frustration with the situation, saying,
We’ve been doing this for years now, and it’s very frustrating when, as a content creator,
all you’re trying to do is promote your country, and you just get frustrated by people in authority.”Miss Trudy
She also apologized for any disrespect or rudeness she may have exhibited,
I didn’t mean to be disrespectful to anyone. I didn’t mean to be rude to anyone, but I just felt like I was standing up for myself, you know?”
