VIDEO:Drama as Larry Madowo, Boniface Mwangi block MP driving on the wrong side
Details of the Land cruiser that was blocked along Parliament road cruising on the wrong side have emerged.
According to information circulated by NTSA, the Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon model belongs to Mwingi West MP Bernard Kitungi.
The vehicle was on Wednesday morning blocked by NTV reporter Larry Madowo and activist Boniface Mwangi along Parliament road as he was driving on the wrong side.
It is not clear if the MP was driving the vehicle at the time the incident took place.
A viral video shows the Land Cruiser reversing to pave way for oncoming vehicles after a two minute stand off.
Mwangi can be heard ordering the driver to respect the law and reverse.
It is also said that an ambulance blaring its siren blocked the road, forcing the Land Cruiser to reverse and join the heavy traffic.
Madowo said: “Apparently, blocking the politician was not enough to stop him from flouting traffic rules as he proceeded to use the wrong side of the road after Larry drove off”.
The actions elicited mixed reactions from social media platforms with some lauding him for his courage and for standing up against bad behavior
