Sections of Nairobi Expressway Closed As Azimio Protests Gain Momentum

    Nairobi Expressway has been closed at Mlolongo, Syokimau and Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) toll stations after anti-government protestors vandalised some parts. 

    In a statement, the operator, Moja Expressway, assured that they are working to restore normalcy even as demonstrations against the rising cost of living gather pace.

    Motorists on the highway have been advised to exit at the JKIA toll station. 

    Minutes earlier, protestors vandalised the barrier and toll stations near Mlolongo, Machakos County. Further, the transport was paralysed after the rowdy youth lit tyres along the expressway 

    National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah blamed the Azimio coalition for the chaos that ensued at the expressway. 

    He questioned the opposition’s motives in calling for protests that led to the destruction of public property. 

    “This madness by all means must stop. Is this a peaceful protest/procession??? And the media will blame the police for dispersing “peaceful demonstrators,” Ichung’wah lamented.
