We shall host world Class Safari Rally, Namwamba

Sports Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba is optimistic that the planned World rally Championships set for next week will be successful.

Today, the CS highlighted the progress of the iconic African motor rallying fixture, assuring the public that the government is committed to support the event to world status.

“We are not leaving anything to chance to deliver a successful, fun-filled, safe, secure event. We want to assure all the people of Kenya and all our guests from all over the world that we are on.”

“We want to extend our invitation to the whole world. We want to allay any concerns and fears about the preparations and give an absolute and unequivocal confirmation that we are perfectly on track.”

Being the only round of the WRC on African soil, Ababu said Kenyans are immensely proud to be a part of this rare experience.

Assistant Inspector General of Police Stephen Etiyang said stern action will be taken against perpetrators of traffic offences during the rally week.

“All security agencies have been involved in this exercise. We assure every member of the public that this rally will be a success,” he said.

“Safari is going to happen over Easter, a festive period and we expect a lot of movement to the western part of the country.”

“We want to ensure the flow of vehicles from Nairobi, Naivasha and Nakuru. I’m appealing to the public to adhere to the  traffic rules.”

Patricia Mutheu, the Matatu Owners Association CEO said: “We are happy to partner with the organisers of this year’s Safari Rally. We have advised our crews on the importance of observing traffic rules.”
