A motorist was on Wednesday arrested for allegedly blocking a VIP motorcade on Lang’ata Road, Nairobi.

In a video shared by Mwangi on Twitter, the man, who was in the company of another passenger is heard in the background demanding to know what he had done wrong to warrant his arrest. He maintained that he had not contravened any traffic rules by blocking the motorcade.

A vehicle with a wailing siren can be seen right in front of the man’s car that was heading towards the opposite direction. A bodyguard can also be seen taking instructions on a radio call.

“I am in court Kibera Law Courts waiting for @s_jobba to be charged. He was driving on Langata Road when he encountered a motorcade on the wrong side of the road. He obeyed the law and stayed on his lane. @NPSOfficial_KE are charging him with drunk driving, ” Mwangi wrote.

In another tweet, the activist claimed that authorities took long to charge the man as Kibera Court number 2 didn’t have a prosecutor.

He said, “they’re waiting for the other courts to finish so they can ‘borrow’ one. ”

Mwangi is known to blocking VIP motorcades on roads. He has for a long time maintained that he can only give way to vehicles that exhibited a clear need to use the sirens.

Yesterday,  defiant Mwangi 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. They were being driven on a 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.

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

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.”

“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.
