Nairobi’s express way is a 60 billion shillings route created in collaboration between the governmental and commercial sectors.
It is a one-of-a-kind route in Kenya that relieves congestion on the Mombasa Road and minimizes travel time to JKIA.
Motorists rushing to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport will take a maximum of 20 minutes to reach the airport .

Unnecessary delays will be a thing of the past, which will benefit business owners greatly.
They will require motorists to pay a toll fee to use the road. This fee will maintain the road.
The public, private partnership means that a private developer will fund the construction of Nairobi’s express way road .
The government will have to pay them through a contractual agreement in a structured manner over a period.

According to journalist and political expert Barrack Muluka, the road, earmarked for 20 billion shillings, will end up costing 60 billion.
A powerful Kenyan family won the tender to construct the road, and family members have been on site supervising ongoing work.
In his interview, Muluka said a powerful Kenyan family will collect the toll fee for the next 60 years.
The family is so powerful making his tongue tied to dare mention their name because of the repercussions.
Muluka was speaking in an interview by Gerald Bitok in his show.
This comes after another report by the Pandora’s papers exposed the family of president Uhuru Kenyatta.
In those papers, the Kenyatta family has stashed about 3 billion shilling in offshore counts.
A section of Kenyan argues it is immoral to hide money instead of pumping it in the Kenyan economy.
