For effective movement of pedestrians in Nairobi city, the government of Kenya initiated construction of many walkways along busy highways. The paved pedestrian walkways are meant to be used by pedestrians only and any other motorist shouldn't use them.
Despite the right restrictions about the use of pedestrian walkways, it has come to public notice that irresponsible motorist including business promoting companies i.e business advertisers have developed a tendency of using the pedestrian walkways to carry out their daily operations.
According to tweet by Ma3Route today, some adverts are reported to have been spotted placed at Lavington, James Gichuru roundabout. The adverts have raised questions among different concerned people. "Apparently these adverts are better than the well being of pedestrians."
From the photo shared, the advert can be seen occupying a large portion of the road. The new move by advertisers on pedestrian walkways hinders smooth movement of people and should be stopped by any means to promote safety of pedestrians.
