Armored vehicle blocking roads in Nairobi TWITTER
Kenyans Left Gazing by this Police Vehicle
Armoured vehicles deployed in Nairobi’s Central Business District (CBD) have captured the attention of many City dwellers.
The police trucks, which have been deployed to blockade various roads in the Capital during the 14th session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) held at KICC, caused many heads turn in the city centre.
The vehicles have gate-like extensions which were unfolded to barricade any intruder from accessing the secluded area — a sight rarely seen in the country.
In pictures circulated on social media, the vehicles were spotted on Kenyatta Avenue and City Hall Way.
Nairobi Traffic Commandant Leonard Katana earlier announced that several roads will be closed for six days as the high-profile meeting continues in the country.
The CBD roads that have been blocked include Harambee Avenue, Mama Ngina Street, Parliament Road and City Hall Way.
Wabera Street, Taifa Road and Standard Street have also been locked down and motorists diverted to alternative routes.
