A tweet from a concerned Kenyan on Twitter has sparked a mixed reaction in the vast community of Kenyans on Twitter.
The tunnel, according to Leon, was dug across Ngong Rd and left unmarked trapping 444 rated machines.

The tunnel had trapped a Range Rover Sport, V8 and an FJ Cruiser. From the pictures, this indeed the most expensive tunnel in Nairobi. Are there no other models of vehicles using that route? Kenyans on Twitter asked.
Here are samples of the reactions to the tweet that has since gone viral

Personally, I think this ditch was organized and planned by insurance cartels, lawyers liaised with KURA folks to create a ‘normal’ accident scene so that the owners file for claims. I mean, this explains why its only high-End vehicles involved…
@felixokari1 I told you not to share the first pic until the insurance comes through! 😡

The contractor should be sued for not putting up the proper signage to notify road users. This shitty contractor needs to pay
