Protest over fuel prices: Police deny that Thika Road is blocked, say photos are fake

The National Police Service (NPS) has rejected viral images showing the enormous traffic along the Thika Superhighway as a result of an alleged blockade.

Spokesman Bruno Shioso made it clear that the social media images were sent and maliciously Photoshoped and that no such incidents have been observed anywhere in the country.

“The National Police Service wants to make it clear that there are no roadblocks on the Thika Superhighway or anywhere else in the country. We urge Kenyans to ignore the Photoshop edited images that are used to spread this misinformation and continue their travel plans. “ Shioso stated on Thursday, September 16.

For most of the day, Kenyans used social media, especially Twitter, to encourage all motorists to park their vehicles on Jan.
