Activist Boniface Mwangi on Tuesday blocked a VIP motorcade on Langata Road in yet another daring move that has got netizens talking.

The VIP being driven in a Toyota Prado, registration number GKB 970R, was being escorted by three vehicles including a police car.

The vehicle with a wailing siren was being driven on the wrong lane.

Efforts by the bodyguards to persuade Mwangi to create way bore no fruits as the defiant activist stood his ground. The driver had to divert before proceeding with the journey.

“One person, an employee of the taxpayers in a convoy of 4 cars decided to use the wrong side of the road. It’s arrogance, endangering lives and breaking the law. I block anyone on the wrong side, the law is clear on use of sirens, it doesn’t say ‘clearing traffic” EMERGENCY ONLY!’,” Mwangi wrote on Twitter.

Accusing the VIPs of bullying other motorists, Mwangi stated that they should follow traffic guidelines just like other citizens.

Reports indicate that the vehicle is assigned to a police boss in Nairobi area.

A section of netizens applauded Mwangi while others accused him of being a clout chaser.

 

In October last year, Mwangi blocked a vehicle belonging to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Odinga is among a list of VIPs who were accorded special clearance on the roads by the Inspector of General of Police Hillary Mutyambai in May last year.

Mwangi dismissed the IG’s directive terming it a mere “suggestion.”

“As a licensed driver and a law-abiding citizen l refuse to move because a Circular by IG isn’t law, it’s a suggestion. #ResistVIPBullies. Let’s fix the transport system for all of us, ” Mwangi added.

Mwangi has for a long time maintained that he can only give way to vehicles that exhibited a clear need to use the sirens.

“I only give way for ambulances and marked police cars that aren’t escorting entitled VIPs. I refuse to let police abuse the siren to clear traffic for the people who should be solving our traffic mess,” said Mwangi after the IG’s directive.
