Motorists protest over poor roads in Mukurweini

24 October 2014, 14:38 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Hundreds of motorists blocked roads in Mukurweini constituency to complain about poor roads in the area.

The motorists together with local residents held demonstrations along Mathaithi-Mukurweini-Othaya road stating that it was in a deplorable condition.

The irked protestors waving placards and twigs blocked the road before planting bananas and napier grass on the road.

The residents who were later joined by five Members of Nyeri County Assembly (MCAs), complained that the contractor, Roben Aberdare Company has delayed the rehabilitation of the road after being awarded the contract three years ago.


They demanded that the contract be given to another company since the road is impassable due to deep potholes.

“As long as the government is fighting corruption, the contractor should first explain why all the delay since he was paid the money to do the work," Githaiga said.

He said the issue will be discussed in the County Assembly.

He claimed that the contractor seems to be untouchable since he is protected by the authorities.

They said they will write a protest letter to the parliamentary committee in charge of roads for action to be taken.

Police were later called to quell the demos but they were overpowered by the protesters who continued to block the road.
