Activist Boniface Mwangi has once again refused to pave way for a VIP motorcade using the wrong side of the road in order to avoid the traffic.
Reacting to the incident, the activist took to Twitter to air his reservation on what he termed as clear violation of the law.
“I only give way to ambulances and fire engines. I block entitled civil servants and politicians who love to use sirens to avoid traffic. As a taxpayer, l expect the people in these big cars to follow the law and work towards solving the perennial traffic jams,” wrote Mwangi on his Twitter page
In video footage shared on his Twitter account, the controversial Activist was heard questioning the security personnel of the ‘VIP’ why he was using the wrong path.
A voice, seemingly of Boniface Mwangi, was heard saying “no, no, no, I am not going to move. Who is this? Obey the law!”
On May 2019, the inspector general of police issued a directive that will see a category of VIPs receive road clearance whenever they are using the road.
Category one includes the President, Deputy President, First Lady, Cabinet secretaries for Interior, Defence and Foreign Affairs and Principal Secretary for Interior.
Category two include Chief Of Defence Forces, service commanders, Inspector General of Police, deputy inspectors of Kenya police and Administration Police while category three include speakers for National Assembly and the Senate and Majority Leader.
Category four include retired presidents and prime minister while category five include ambulances and fire brigade.
All other vehicles including the government ones were and are required to follow normal traffic procedures.
