Remember those cars you used to draw during your pre-primary days? Well, Laikipia County under the leadership of Governor Ndiritu Muriithi has managed to make them a reality, if their recent presentation at the Devolution Conference in Kirinyaga County is anything to go by.
What started off as a rumour a few weeks back, that Laikipia County was manufacturing motor vehicles from locally available materials, was proven to be true as Kenyans witnessed it first hand at their stand in the conference.
The cars presented made Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua [whose stand showcased bags of sand and pieces of building material] or Tharaka Nithi Governor Muthomi Njuki [whose stand had banana fruits] look like absolute geniuses.

When the story got on social media, the international community quickly picked it up and within no time, Kenya was the trending topic in Africa.
Some edited the photos to mock the cars even further.
This is what the online community had to say.
This is fucking hilarious . I though it was a toy car at first glance. ???????????? and the price. I won't take it if it's free
