MCA asks why Forest road is to be renamed Maathai
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.
