Travellers delayed as rains render roads impassable
Travellers from various parts of Garissa County are being delayed due to the ongoing rains that have rendered roads impassable.
Passengers on a bus that was stuck in the muddy Masalani-garissa road told the Saturday Nation that their leaders were to blame for the situation. They accused the leaders of turning a blind eye to their plight, 54 years after Kenya’s independence.
Mr Ahmed Bashir Mohamed, one of the passengers on the E-coach bus, yesterday said: “We started our journey around 10am and now it’s 5.30pm, yet the crew is still struggling to remove the bus from the mud.”
“For how long will the road remain in this poor state? We have been electing leaders every five years but nothing has changed,” he added.
The driver, Mr Mohamed Siraj, said he has been driving along the same road for the last 15 years and its state had not changed.
He said local leaders should use murram to improve the road if tarmacking it is too expensive.
