President William Ruto’s presidential motorcade came into focus recently after he retired his Toyota Lexus LX-570 and took up the full presidential convoy complete with all the trappings of power.

Kenya borrows from the formation used by the US president's motorcade.

According to security experts, the number of cars and structures is decided depending on the president’s itinerary and level of the risk.

Before embarking on the road, the team has to strategize on which routes to take and analyse their choke points, shortcuts and details such as the sun’s position because direct rays can make it harder to spot threats.

As much as the travel arrangements are meant to keep the president safe, the presidential motorcade is almost a tradition.

It is also a travelling show orchestrated to be a symbol of sorts for Kenyans to admire.
