What best do you do on a Sunday afternoon than join fellow compatriots in Naivasha and watch the ongoing WRC Safari Rally? Well today Sunday 27th June, President Uhuru Kenyatta has joined Kenyans in Naivasha in watching the ongoing WRC Safari rally.
The President was in for entertainment as he is dressed casually in an Orange T-shirt, a bomber jacket and some pair of jeans.
"His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta joins motorsport enthusiasts at the Hells Gate WRC Circuit in Naivasha to witness the Power Stage Finish of the 2021 Safari Rally", State House updated Netizens.
"The return of WRC Safari Rally in the country is a relief to motorsport enthusiasts. It is an opportunity to showcase our beauty as a country while promoting local economies. With my wife Zahra in Naivasha, delighting at the spectacular scenes and exploits by WRC competitors", the Senator took to twitter to inform.
The ongoing World Rally Championships (Safari Rally) on Sunday saw the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) notify the general public of alternative routes for those using the busy Nairobi Naivasha Nakuru highway.
“KeNHA wishes to notify the general public that the Nairobi Naivasha Nakuru (A8) highway has been experiencing heavy traffic snarl-up and therefore the Authority has embarked on dualling the road stretch through the Public Private Partnership Programme.” Read part of the statement.
Here are the alternative routes:
1). Rironi-Mai Mahiu-Naivasha (Approximately 60KM)
All heavy goods vehicles compulsorily use the Rironi-Mai mahiu-Naivasha route (A8-South) which is about 58KM long, while all other vehicles use the Rironi-Naivasha (A8 route).
2). Naivasha to Nakuru (Approximately 68 KM)
This is where the traffic from all the two cited routes and any other local traffic converge and therefore no doubt that the traffic surge is quite considerate in this stretch.
Route 1: 190KM. Nyabini Flyover (near sonko mjinga market)-Njabini-Engineer-Olkalou-Ol Joro Orok-Dundori-Lanet (Nakuru)
Route 2: 186KM. Naivasha-Engineer-Olkalou-Ol Joro Orok-Dundori-Lanet (Nakuru)
Route 3: 103KM. Gilgil-Olkalou-Ol Joro Orok-Dundori-Lanet (Nakuru).
