, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 4 – A huge traffic jam is expected on Thursday along Ngong Road ahead of the opening of the Agricultural Society of Kenya (ASK) Show by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to police, more personnel have been deployed on the road to direct traffic flow.

Motorists have also been urged to observe traffic rules and follow directions given by the police.

The show is expected to run up to Sunday.

On Wednesday, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko stated that City Hall will put up Food Inspection points in all entry points to the county to guarantee safety and quality of food that enters the markets.

Speaking during the luncheon by the ASK, Trade Fair, Sonko said all food products coming to the Capital City must be inspected.

The Governor said most of Nairobi food comes from outside the County because agricultural production in the City is to a large extent small-scale, market oriented and subsistence farming because farmers have small portions of land.

Sonko stated they are also developing and piloting the Nairobi Food Market Information System which will use a multi-sectorial approach to improve the efficiency of the food system.
