Laikipia county took advantage of the 6th Devolution Conference to display its invention – a tuk-tuk type of vehicle called ‘BJ-50’. However, many Kenyans on social media did not think it was up to par.
Governor Ndiritu Muriithi said the ‘tuk-tuk’ can carry up to seven people and costs Sh450,000. It also has a cruise speed of 70kmph, according to an article on the county website.
But Kenyans were not impressed with the vehicle and took to Twitter to make fun of it. Some said the Mobius car invention was way better.
