The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nairobi -

A Nairobi MCA has de­manded to know why the county government wants to re­name For­est Road af­ter No­bel lau­re­ate Wan­gari Maathai and not Limuru Road as directed by the as­sem­bly. Karura MCA Ka­mau Thuo yes­ter­day asked for a state­ment from the Trans­port com­mit­tee de­tail­ing the pro­ce­dure used to re­name the road. On Thurs­day, Gov­er­nor Evans Kidero said he will re­name For­est Road af­ter Maathai in recog­ni­tion of her tire­less en­vi­ron­men­tal cam­paign­ing. “I want to know the law this county is us­ing in re­nam­ing roads be­cause there was no public par­tic­i­pa­tion,” Thuo said.
