State should not take back the ru­ral roads func­tion

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The re­newed op­po­si­tion by the gov­er­nors to re­clas­si­fy­ing roads should be taken se­ri­ously. Coun­cil of Gov­er­nors vice chair­man John Mruttu has said pro­pos­als to re­name ru­ral roads as sec­ondary na­tional trunk roads is an at­tempt to take them back to the na­tional gov­ern­ment. This is not the first time gov­er­nors are rais­ing ques­tions about roads. Given that the scan­dals Kenya has had in the past and as re­cently as this year, have hap­pened in the na­tional gov­ern­ment, the gov­er­nors have rea­son to worry about Nairobi tak­ing back the ru­ral roads func­tion.
