Senator Nyong’o caught breaking traffic rules

Kisumu Senator Anyang’ Nyong’o seems to have no regard for road safety if pictures that have emerged online showing him flouting traffic rules is anything to go by.

The undated pictures show the veteran politician – who is the father of Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o – riding on a boda boda without a protective helmet.

Other than not having a protective helmet, the senator is also sharing the passenger’s seat with another man.


This is clear a contravention of Kenyan traffic laws which prohibit more than two passengers from riding on a motorbike at any given time.

“A whole Senator na hazingatii usalama (disregarding safety)? Safety first. How will his transport and infrastructure Government work efficiently?” one Facebook user posed.

Nyong’o has announced his intention to vie for the Kisumu gubernatorial post in next year’s general elections.
