Kenyan police revealed on Sunday that they are questioning a terror suspect who was discovered surveying the recently constructed Nairobi Expressway.
According to a security report, the suspect was discovered in an area that was designated as off-limits to pedestrians.
The police report stated, “Upon interrogation, he was unable to give a satisfactory account of himself.”
According to the police, some areas of the route are pedestrian no-go zones that are guarded by armed security personnel.
The 27-kilometer road, which cost 73.5 billion shillings (about 638 million dollars) and was developed through a public-private partnership initiative, is expected to reduce travel time from Nairobi’s south to west to around 20 minutes, down from up to two hours today during peak hours.
