At what speed do Miraa vehicles travel?

The muguka transporter, going by @monicahmugo869 on TikTok, was accused by some of endangering the lives of other motorists by driving at a speed of 160km/h.

In the video, the single mother of three was seen at full acceleration in a Toyota Fielder, reminiscent of the pickup trucks that ferry the plants miraa and muguka in the Mt Kenya region.

While the prescribed speed limit across most Kenyan highways is 80 km/h, drivers ferrying miraa often flout the traffic rulebook to deliver the perishable stimulant.

Their vehicles are modified to reach top speeds and ensure stability while speeding along the Meru-Embu-Nairobi and Nanyuki-Nairobi highways.

Alarmed social media users cautioned her against excessive speeds.

Kimtai Paps:

"160km/h? Any slight miscalculation, you will be on printed T-shirts.”

Joel Muterian:

"I don't play with speed because it kills.”

Brian Mushaukwa:

"People who don't work in hospitals are so brave. I've seen too much to drive over 100".
