The World Rally Championship (WRC) Team Kenya leader Nzioka Waita is optimistic of a good show at the 2021 Kenya rally chapter.

The State House Chief of Staff, in an exclusive interview aired by the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) says his target is to finish the gruelling rally.

Nzioka said the team is adequately prepared for the show piece, on the scenic but almost forgotten Kenyan terrain.

The WRC rally route is clustered in Naivasha, Nakuru county some 100 Kilometres from Nairobi.
