Kenyans have dismissed two locally made cars by Laikipia County showcased at the sixth annual Devolution Conference in Kirinyaga.

The county proudly displayed its invention dubbed the ‘BJ-50’, but Kenyans online can’t stop laughing.

According to Governor Ndiritu Muriithi, the โ€˜tuk-tukโ€™ can carry up to seven people and costs Sh450,000.

Shockingly, the car has a cruise speed of 70 Km per hour according to an article on the county website.

Already it has 26 orders from “influential personalities”. 

This comes just a day after a lion statue erected by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko at the University Way roundabout elicited mixed reactions from KoT.

Majority of Kenyans on Twitter said the statue is poorly sculptured and only serves to ridicule the city instead of beautifying it.

Here are some of the reactions.
