Jeff Koinange offloading his G-Wagon at a throw-away price – PHOTOS
Media personality Jeff Koinange has put his Mercedes G-Wagon on sale. He is offloading the luxury ride at a throw away price.
The news anchor who is famous for his JKL news segment rides in a unique Mercedes G class which is left-handed unlike most Kenyan cars and against the Kenyan road laws.
The celebrated anchor posted a video in 2019 on his social media pages announcing an upcoming event dubbed Country Music and his high-end ride was also featured in the clip.
Taking to Twitter, lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi wondered why the anchor was driving a left-hand drive car in Kenya explaining that the country’s laws were clear against the importation of similar cars since motorists drive on right-side lanes on Kenyan roads.
“Jeff’s car is left-hand drive… I thought we have a legal prohibition on such imports…or is Jeff’s a special case?” posed the lawyer.
The Mercedes G Class SUV is manufactured by Magna Steyr (formerly Steyr-Daimler-Puch) in Austria and sold by Mercedes-Benz.
It is characterised by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature.
A city car dealer who deals with high-end cars recently shared the SUV on their social media telling their clients that Mr Koinange was selling it.
“Our good friend, Mr JK, finally wants to let go of his G-Class G63 AMG 👌 Asking Price is Kes. 4,999,999 or the nearest offer!” the dealer shared on social media.
The Mercedes Benz G-Wagon, was worth over Sh14 million when new.
Mr Koinange’s car doesn’t hold any displayed number plate which has in the past raised eyebrows with Kenyans wondering why he moves around with the unmarked car.
