Kenyans are not that STUPID.. I give the driver of the truck the benefit of doubt and assume it is sayyyyy maybe a construction truck.(Maybe finalizing the paint job on the curb).

I also thought it was a construction truck coz lets be frank, whats the nearest point that he can safely go back to the 'right' carriage?

That makes it even worse. A construction truck? Give me a break! The whole of that lane need to be closed for construction. Period! there should be signs of "construction ahead" followed by barriers. Just few days ago there was a fatal accident between a construction truck and a matatu. Trust me the matatu driver was not the only one to blame. The construction company had a role too.

I love the view of the city from that interchange. If only they could bring down that TV mast belonging to Kenya Broadcasting Corporation.

I noticed they have reconfigured the interchange at Thika into a cloverleaf junction. Really wish I'd have aerial pics of that section.
