World Rally Championship Leader, Kalle Rovanpera from Finland once again takes the lead emerging victorious in the Naivasha Safari Rally taking his fourth win out of the six events this year in Naivasha on the 25th June, 2022.

This was unexpected after he arrived on Thursday’s opening in the Super Special Stage in Nairobi where he almost rolled his GR Yaris, getting a puncture in the process.

Despite all the obstacles, Finn led home Elfyn Evans by 52.8s alongside Takamoto Katsuta third (1m 42.7s behind) and Sebastien Ogier fourth (2m10.3s back) to score Toyota’s 1-2-3-4 in WRC since the 1993 Safari Rally.

However the 21- year old proved his fans wrong on Friday when he admirably surprised them on Kenya’s deep fesh-fesh sand and wreaked Havoc with the crew of WRC ending the day with a 14.6s lead defeating Elfyn Evans.

Evans, however, was disturbed by a windscreen washer issue that severally limited his visibility giving Rovanpera the win and was able to end the Saturday race with a 40.3s lead thus giving him the control. Evans, however, elected to step down on Sunday given the nature of the car-breaking stages thus securing his second podium of the campaign.

“Hell’s Gate was quite rough. I just tried to avoid all the stones,” said Rovanpera.

Kalle Rovanpera is a Finnish World Rally Championship driver who drives for Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT alongside his codriver, Jonne Halttunen. He is the son of the former World Rally Championship driver Harri Rovanpera.

This year’s Safari Rally which was a four-day event marked the sixty-ninth running of the Safari Championship.

According to FIA World Rally Championship, challenging dirt roads, stunning picturesque scenery and exotic wildlife are the classic features of Safari Rally Kenya. The teams were supposed to tackle rocky and rutted tracks alongside unpredictable weather conditions, which would transform dry and dusty trails into muddy bogs.

Kenyan Radio Kiss 100 radio presenter Kwambox has talked about courtship amongst partners.


Speaking earlier today on the morning show alongside Chito she asked if men still ask ladies out in a right way and set things right.

According to her, a man should set things clear that you are my girlfriend or rather propose to her rather than assuming that they are in a relationship which as per isn’t the thing.

“If you don’t open your mouth and ask…Kwambox will you be my girlfriend …you better knowthat out here…. leo niko na wewe, but I am still going to eat someone else’s dinner.”

She said that she can’t give someone privileges of a relationship and that person has yet to make it clear that they are dating.
Being nice to her is one thing, and asking for her hand to be your girlfriend is another different thing.

“I can’t give you privileges of a relationship, and you haven’t opened your mouth to acknowledge me as your girlfriend.”

She insists that for anyone who isn’t making it clear that they are dating and assumes stuff will be greatly disappointed as she will consider them as a close family member.

“If you don’t ask me out just because you are taking me out for lunches and dinners…maybe you just want to be a brother in Christ …you just have to open your mouth.”

She has urged men to consider making a bold move to their dates and ask them to be their girlfriends, or else they will end up being frustrated as ladies don’t assume it the way they do.
