‘Hungry’ Kenyans loot an overturned lorry causing traffic along Mombasa Road – Video
Transport along Mombasa Road was disrupted after Nairobians blocked the road to loot packets of unga from a lorry that had overturned.
In a video that went viral, Kenyans are seen making off with packets of unga on foot while others were ferrying the stolen merchandise using motorcycles.
In the clip that is now making rounds online, women and children are seen rushing to the accident scene to pick at least a packet of the ‘rare’ commodity.
In the background, you can hear men talking as they rush to pick their share of the loot.
“I have seen it here. Let’s rush,” said the man in the background.
The melee of people led to massive traffic on the dual carriageway as cars moved at a snail’s pace.
Currently, a 2kg packet of unga is being sold at Sh200 after the government suspended the Sh100 unga subsidy a few weeks ago.
