PHOTOS: Laikipia County showcases Sh450, 000 locally made cars and Kenyans can’t stop talking
Laikipia County Government showcased two locally made cars at the Devolution Conference and Kenyans can’t stop talking.
The invention that was christened Laikipia BJ-50 is basically a four-wheel tuk-tuk like car that goes for about Sh450, 000.
Samuel Gatonye who is a Nyahururu-based, self-trained innovator is the brainchild behind the “Sh450k” car which has the capacity of carrying 7 passengers.
The car has a maximum speed of 70 Km per hour and according to an article on the Laikipia County Government website the mini-car has already received 26 orders from influential personalities.
Despite the innovation receiving praise from Kenyans, a section of netizens saw it as an item of ridicule as they came out to make fun of the car project.
