Res­i­dents ex­press their dis­sat­is­fac­tion with stalled projects and poor roads

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nairobi -

City Hall of­fi­cials were yes­ter­day put to task over stalled projects, poor roads and drainage. Speak­ing at a pub­lic fo­rum on projects’ im­ple­men­ta­tion by the Trans­port sec­tor, res­i­dents said some projects started more than two years ago have not been com­pleted and con­trac­tors are never seen on site. “Con­struc­tion on Manyanja Road and Harakati bus sta­tion has stalled. If you look at the con­tentions on the sign­board, they show the projects were to be com­pleted last year,” res­i­dent Suba Churchill said. He said most roads have been turned into dump­ing sites, do not have street lights and are full of pot­holes. “Manyanja Road is al­ways in­fested with rats and the area be­comes flooded when it rains be­cause of poor drainage,” he said. Res­i­dent John Kin­uthia said most of the roads do not have pedes­trian walk­ways. He said the few with path­ways have been in­vaded by hawk­ers and boda boda op­er­a­tors.
