Residents of Nairobi on Tuesday morning woke up to a massive traffic snarl-up that affected major roads coming into the CBD.
Motorists, including passengers using Public Service Vehicles (PSVs), heading to their respective places of work spent more than two hours on the road.
Police had blocked some roads to give clearance to dignitaries and officials attending a conference at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
The conference is organised by the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) to discuss on reproductive health and gender equality.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is among high profile guests who are attending the conference that begun on Tuesday and is expected to end on Thursday.
Roads that were mostly affected include Mombasa road, Jogoo road, Langata Road, Kiambu Road, Thika Superhighway.
Many Nairobians were caught unaware, especially since no notice was issued by traffic police beforehand.
“The #ICPD25 #NairobiSummit exposing the very worst of the neglected traffic situation in Nairobi. All city roads clogged up as VIPS get road clearance from airport to hotels to KICC, leaving residents stuck on the roads. The cost of bad governance and leadership. Let’s enjoy it,” tweeted @SaddiqueShaban.
