Vocal activist Boniface Mwangi on Thursday, February 6, 2020, made three demands to Police Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai with respect to road traffic rules.

Through a letter seen by Ureport, Mwangi wrote to request for information on the right of way to be used in traffic and the use of the wrong side.

In the letter, the activist explained that there is confusion which he felt was caused by motorists using the wrong side of the road and asked for clarity from the police boss.

He went ahead and listed three demands that he expected the IG to address in order to ease the confusion to him and Kenyans in general.

They include;

1. Who has the right of way in traffic and have there been any additions and removals from your published list of May 2019.

2. How are members of the public to differentiate between VIPs who are permitted and those imposters who are breaking the law, when most of those on the list issued by you have no visible and clear markings on their vehicles?

3. As a country, we drive on the left side of the road. Are those in your VIP list allowed to drive on the “wrong side” i.e. the right hand side of the road? Does that form part of their privileges?

On January 21, 2020, Boniface Mwangi shook the internet after he blocked a government convoy which was moving in the wrong side of the road.

In June 2019, the activist also uploaded a video of him blocking another government entourage driving on the wrong side.

When one of the bodyguards alighted and asked him to give way, Boniface refused saying that they were driving on the wrong side.

In his caption, Boniface said that he only gives way to ambulances and fire engines.

“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.” Said Boniface.
