City commuters stranded for hours in monster traffic jam – PHOTOS
Commuters using Thika Superhighway were on Friday morning stuck for hours in a traffic jam linked to the graduation ceremony held at University of Nairobi (UoN).
The graduation ceremonies routinely attract abnormal traffic in city roads due to the high number of visitors in attendance.
On Friday, motorists using Mombasa Road and Jogoo Road also complained of heavy traffic.
Traffic along Thika Superhighway towards the city centre was slow from Allsops all the way to the Pangani roundabout and continued through Forest Road.
Commuters and motorists took to Twitter to lament the massive traffic that dragged on till about mid-day.
