Naivasha is the place to be this weekend due to the much-hyped world car racing happening in the tourism-rich town of Nakuru county.
Fun-loving Kenyans thronged in their numbers to witness the historical safari rally sporting event make a come back in Kenya after years of absence.
This was realized after the intense lobbying by the government led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and the cabinet secretary for sports, Amina Mohammed. The risk of covid 19 did not deter them from enjoying everything that comes with racing.
The event is set to revive the tourism sector in the area that has failed to pick up post covid 19 crisis and inject more than ten billion shillings to the ailing Kenyan economy that is on the verge of collapse. This is good news to many people living in Naivasha and Nakuru county at large because of the economic opportunities it sets to create.
It is a major event happening in Kenya post covid 19 and Subaru owners have stolen the show to an extent that if you don’t own one, you feel isolated in Naivasha.
Popular radio host and comedian Felix Odiwour aka Jalang’o was not left behind. In a post on his official social media pages, he confirmed that he was en route to Naivasha in a yellow jeep but his dressing code is the one that made headlines.
The talented MC and comedian wore a Maasai ‘shuka’ sparking online debate with many of his fans questioning his real motives behind the dress code.
Jalang’o received a lot of stick but much of it was just friendly banter which is part of the fun that the car racing rally has elicited.
The Kiss 100 co-host is known for his style and grace. The man has got dope drip and his love for big machines is well documented.
Here are some of the reactions from Kenyans;
