God save Ongata Rongai residents

03 May 2016, 23:48 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Living in Ongata Rongai, for long praised as one of the fastest growing satellite towns in the country has become a nightmare thanks to endless traffic snarl-ups.

For many residents of the town which is roughly 20 kilometres off the Nairobi CBD it is a nightmare commuting to and from home.

Thanks to a big number of potholes along Magadi Road, lack of road expansion and the growing number of motor vehicle users in the town, traffic stretches kilometres on kilometres both coming into and exiting the town.

For many who have to transit to the CBD to work, endless hours are spent on the road.

" I have to wake up at four AM and leave the house by 4.45 am to get to town by 8 am and then in the evening I leave work at 5 and get home past 8 pm. It is endless traffic," John Ngarama who lives in the town tells News24.

Lucy Njoroge bought a home in the town in 2005 and says that thanks to the commitment she is forced to deal with the traffic on a daily basis.

" Nowadays if you leave the house before 5 am you find traffic. It is distressing," she states.

Kajiado County government officials when reached for comment stated that there are plans to expand the road.

" The road expansion has been in the pipeline for a long time. It is still being worked on," an official at Governor David Nkedianye told News24.

The fact that the road will be expanded one day though is no consolation for residents.

" I sit through traffic for hours daily and something has to be done. There needs to be major work on this road," Njoroge continues.

For Ngarama, having waited close to 5 years for road expansion says that divine intervention is what will save them.

" God save the people of Ongata Rongai," he quips.
