Kenya Railways has warned Nairobi residents against the use of the Railways footbridge in large numbers as was witnessed on Monday 3rd December.

Residents have been asked to be extra cautious as the bridge is not strong enough to hold many people.

“Kenya Railways would like to urge members of the public using the footbridge connecting CBD and Landi Mawe to do so in an orderly manner for their own safety and that of other users,” the state corporation wrote on its Facebook page.

On Monday, hundreds of city residents flocked the footbridge after Nairobi governor Mike Sonko banned matatus from accessing the Central Business District.

The wooden bridge can only support a maximum of five people per square meter.
