Lang’ata Road users advised on alternatives routs for Jamhuri Day celebrations
Nairobi residents who regularly use Lang’ata Road are urged to consider alternative routes on Tuesday, according to Nairobi Regional Commander Adamson Bungei.
While no road closures are planned, increased police presence in various estates and roads is expected to maintain order during the Jamhuri Day celebrations.
During a press briefing on Monday, December 11, Mr Bungei assured that traffic flow in the city, starting from residential areas, will be well-coordinated.
Major roads within the city will not experience disruptions, and security measures have been in place since four days ago. The Regional Commander emphasised that there should be no concerns about challenges during the celebrations.
However, motorists using Lang’ata Road were advised to anticipate heavy traffic without road closures. Alternative routes suggested include Lang’ata interlink towards Ngong Road, among others.
Mr Bungei highlighted that security deployment for the Jamhuri Day celebrations, including the ongoing Youth Summit, has been ongoing for several days.
He urged residents to report any suspicious activities for immediate police action.
In preparation for the festivities, Nairobi Regional Commissioner Katee Mwanzia announced that gates will open at 6 am, with attendees expected to be seated by 8 am.
Residents from all 17 sub-counties are encouraged to participate, and the police assured the public of heightened security to prevent cases of robbery, mugging, and car theft during the holiday season.
