NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 4 – Motorists and passengers were on Saturday caught up in a kilometers long traffic jam overnight.

Capital FM New’s Simon Ndonga was among motorists affected and reported that the snarl-up extended for approximately 20kms “on the stretch before Athi River.”

He spent the night on the road and at 6.40am reported: “The traffic jam is yet to be cleared and motorists are still stranded. It is not yet clear what caused the snarl-up.”
