Many city residents were caught unawares on Friday, June 4 morning upon seeing police and Nairobi County Fire Department officers washing a section of the Outering Road.
The section of the road was been washed following an oil and grease spillage as a result of a road accident.
The cleaning exercise led to huge traffic snarl up along the road on Friday morning, with motorists opting for alternative routes.
The Thursday night accident happened near Mutindwa market, with oil and grease spill stretching all the way to Allsoaps.
Action had to be taken as three cars had crashed on Friday morning because of the slippery road.
