Rongai Resident Demonstrate Against poor Roads

29 August 2012, 13:06 Steve Wambugu

Business at Rongai township in Nakuru county was paralyzed for the better part of Monday morning after scores of residents demonstrated against poor state of the road network in the area.

The angry residents blocked a dilapidated main road in the area using tree branches and vowed not to relent until they were assured by the Government officials that the road would be fixed within two weeks.

They lamented that apart from taking time to access their farms, they were being forced to incur heavy losses as farm produce went to waste in farms.

Those with vehicles also complained of heavy losses due to frequent breakdowns along the impassable road.

According to their spokesman Dan Okoth it was a shame for the locals to see their sweat going to waste in their farms and warned elected leaders against politicising matters of development.

The worst affected sections of the road he said are that from Rongai town, through Kimede, Kamukunji to Kadutura.

At Kimede, rainwater has cut off the entire feeder road with water flowing everywhere forcing locals to divert into private farms.

Another local, Esther Karanja said women seeking delivery services either in Rongai or Nakuru towns were forced to deliver on the way.

They demanded for repair of blocked culverts to prevent water from overrunning the roads during rainy season.

However, Gitau Kamau said roads neglect for years should be blamed and urged leaders to move in and solve the situation.

Mr Kamau insisted that it was unfair for the residents to resort to demonstrations because the leaders have failed in their duties.

Boda Boda operators have also not been spared after being forced to increase daily fuel consumption from initial sh200 to sh500 hence increase in transport prices.
