Jomo Kenyatta's Presidential Car Resurface Online

The vehicle which is said to have been used as an official car for the president during the president Jomo Kenyatta's era and partly during the president Moi's era resurfaced. The vehicle which has a Mercedes make is one of the strongest cars which ever existed in Kenya.

During the era of president Jomo Kenyatta immediately after Independence, this was the vehicle he used as his official car to attend functions and other public appearances. The late president Moi is also said to have used the same vehicle during his earlier years in office.

This is when the other generational vehicles came to Kenya and the government started changing their vehicles gradually. Then during the president Kibaki's era new generation cars started streaming into the country to present when the government procured and use new generation vehicles.

Most of the top public servants especially the members of the cabinet and even the speakers of Parliament use government vehicles. Even the governors and leaders in both houses of Parliament have an advantage to access government vehicles they use for official duties.

The government usually doesn't give vehicles to the members of Parliament or the county assembly members.
