Not even the absence of their drivers in the Safari rally for the second year running could stop Ugandan rally enthusiasts from storming the Kenyan city Nairobi in their hundreds, report Douglas Mazune and Reuben Olita. During scrutineering of cars at Kenyatta International Conference Center Thursday morning Ugandans out-numbered the locals sending some of the un-informed Kenyans asking to be shown Emma Katto's car. "Lazima Katto yiko, mboona wa'Ganda wengi bwana. (Katto, must be one in the race there are many Ugandans," a man wondered. Ugandan registered cars are a common sight in Nairobi and Luganda is the language in rally circles here. The general turn out by the locals was the poorest in the Safari rally's history with most fans calling for the revival of the famous East African rally of the sixties. The change of dates of the on-going world rally championship from the traditional Easter holidays was another contributing factor as most fans said they were not aware of the event. The event was flagged off by Kenyan sports minister Francis Nyenze at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre yesterday. Ends
