  • President Uhuru Kenyatta stepped out in a seemingly new car that is not part of his usual convoy during a tour of Nairobi CBD on Tuesday, November 10. 

    According to photos from State House, President Kenyatta switched style by abandoning the SUVs he frequently uses and instead rode a shiny black Mercedes Benz S-class for his trip. 

    In the recent past, the Head of State has been using his Toyota Landcruiser V8 and Mercedes Benz Limousine S600 Pullman for official travel.

    He also inspected the Customs Bonded Warehouse and addressed Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) business owners. 

    His predecessor, retired President Mwai Kibaki was and remains a fan of sleek Mercedes Benzes.

    He preferred to use the sleek sedan cars despite suggestions that bigger SUVs would be better for his legs which were recovering from the effects of his 2002 accident.

    Other vehicles at President Kenyatta’s disposal include a Toyota Land Cruiser 200 series, open-top Toyota Landcruiser for official ceremonies as well as the Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman Guard Limo.

    While cruising around on incognito mode, President Uhuru has been spotted in several other vehicles including a Mercedes G Wagon, Landrover Defender, Range Rover Vogue, a 2017 Lexus LX570, and more recently what looked like a Toyota Probox.

    The  KRC Customs Transit Shed commissioned by the Head of State will protect traders who import goods from outside the country against corrupt clearing agents who are notorious for conning importers. 

    “Now containers with consolidated goods shall be delivered here by Kenya Railways and KRA will supervise the opening of the containers and traders will be able to pick them from here,”  

    He added that traders would only pay customs tax and would no longer be charged container deposit fees.
