Fix bad roads in your coun­ties, do not wait for the state, gov­er­nors urged

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Central -

Gov­er­nors should fight for con­trol of all roads in their coun­ties be­cause it is the only way to keep them in good con­di­tion.

Nyan­darua Se­na­tor Muriuki Karue on Satur­day said gov­er­nors should en­sure pot­holes on high­ways are re­paired, in­stead of wait­ing for the na­tional gov­ern­ment to take ac­tion.

“The Se­nate shall an­swer for them if they are ques­tioned for seal­ing the pot­holes,” Karue said.

He spoke in Weru lo­ca­tion, Ol Joro Orok, Nyan­darua county. Karue at­tended the burial of Nairobi busi­ness­man Peter Wan­jau.

Wan­jau, former Bar­clays Bank Kisumu re­gional man­ager, was killed on Oc­to­ber 6 af­ter his ve­hi­cle col­lided with a can­ter in Ol Kalou.

Wan­jau’s wi­dow Eu­nice Runji blamed the poor roads for the ac­ci­dent. The can­ter’s driver was evad­ing a pot­hole when the two ve­hi­cles col­lided.
