I bet by now you’ve seen it right? I’m talking about photos of Nairobi’s new glass walkway located at Le Mac Towers in Westlands. The glass walkway is located 24 floors up the building which is 126 meters high. The marvels of architecture right? Kenyans, are however, not entirely sold.
I mean, who can blame us. The scandals we’ve experienced in this country have made us quite skeptical about things. I remember first seeing a similar glass walkway on Twitter on a building in China so you can imagine my surprise to find that we have one here. Are we really ready for this?
The team behind the walkway are however, giving a reassuring note. Ravi Vasta, the developer, spoke to Business Daily Africa saying, “You no longer have to travel to spend a fortune to walk on a terrifying glass floor or bridge as it is right here in Nairobi. It is a 60mm thick see-through glass floor standing out around the property and is meant to beat the fear for heights.”
Kenyans online responded to the article online citing their fears and skepticism about the safety of the design while others were just, you know, being the usual hilarious Kenyans.
A Sky Scrapper in Nairobi with a Glass Walkway? Lol. Miss me with that. 😭
