Among the roads that are expected to be affected include Thika Highway, Uhuru Highway, Waiyaki Way, University Way, Mbagathi Road and Heile Sellaisie among others.
The gridlock is expected to unusually huge considering the high number of students expected to graduate particularly in Nairobi and Kenyatta universities which often register the highest number of graduands.
With the addition of Daystar and TUK which are all around the CBD, motorists are left with no option but to find alternative ways in and out of the country’s capital.
TUKO.co.ke understands the situation on Thika Road is likely to be worsened by the ongoing construction of a footbridge at Njomoko which has resulted in blockage of a section of the highway.
Previously, the universities have been holding their graduation ceremonies on different dates but this year fate seems to have caused the inconvenience.
