Ex­pand Ron­gai, Kis­e­rian roads or face law­suit, state, Nairobi, Ka­ji­ado warned

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nairobi -

On­gata Ron­gai and Kis­e­rian res­i­dents have threat­ened le­gal ac­tion against Ka­ji­ado county, Nairobi county and the na­tional gov­ern­ment over poor roads and peren­nial traf­fic jams.

Res­i­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion chair­man Fred Gori said they are ne­glected and their busi­nesses un­der­mined by the poor in­fras­truc­ture and fre­quent grid traf­fic grid­lock on the Ron­gai-Nairobi road.

“It’s un­fair. We pay taxes and get al­most noth­ing in re­turn,” he said yes­ter­day. “Liv­ing in Kis­e­rian and On­gata Ron­gai has be­come a bad dream from which one sim­ply can’t wake up.”

They said the fre­quent traf­fic night­mare wastes their time and leads to road ac­ci­dents, as some mo­torists break traf­fic rules. Gori ap­pealed to Trans­port CS James Macharia to in­ter­vene and en­sure the sin­gle-lane Ma­gadi road is ex­panded.
