Nairobi's hottest matatu: Pipeline's Kanambo 2 boasts of fans, air freshener

 Kanambo 2

News of famous Pipleline nganya Backstage changing routes to Ongata Rongai two weeks ago broke the hearts of loyal customers.

But not for long, as the replacement of Backstage came sooner in the form of a mathree called Kanambo 2.

Despite having been side-lined before, Kanambo 2 is now the darling of Pipeline. Word reaching Ma3 Culture is that Backsatge did not receive a warm welcome in Rongai.

This week, we get up-close and personal with Kanambo 2, a member of Royal Swift Sacco with three other nganyas.

Named after popular Jamaican artist’s song, Kanambo 2 has been on the road for a while and boasts of a VIP area dubbed Danger Zone.

The real magic happens when interior lights are switched on to match the red leather seats and cool exteriors.

Unlike other mathrees, Kanambo 2 has enough legroom, enough fans to cool off the heat and air fresheners to keep it fresh all day,” said Alex Mwangi who is one of Kanambo 2 crew members.
