The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has urged motorists using the usually busy Nairobi – Nakuru highway near Mai Mahiu to use alternative routes.
The warning comes after a tanker overturned early on Thursday, causing a traffic snarl up stretching miles because of looters who have been siphoning fuel.
“Motorist are urged to use alternative routes, fuel siphoning is dangerous,” tweeted NTSA.
