A section of youths from Kisumu ndogo village, Lindi ward Kibra constituency have embarked on a mission to level a steep part of the road linking Kisumu ndogo and Gatwekwera village in Sarang’ombe ward.
Speaking to Ghetto Radio News, one of the youths say that they were prompted to renovate the hilly road leading to Kibra P.A.G church after waiting for the county government through Lindi Ward MCA Jairus Omaya alias Kasee to upgrade the road in vain while the residents suffer.
The youths are now calling Kasee to engage them through a public forum in finding a better solution for the road upgrade because the county government’s plan has not materialized.
They have further put the legislator on the spot over the bridge that connects Kisumu Ndogo and Gatwekera saying the construction of the bridge is behind schedule.
.“When it rains this road is usually impassable especially for boda boda operators and those using wheelbarrows for transport. The rains usually carry murram sediments leaving the road steep and slippery and that is why we took it upon ourselves to at least make it passable for the time being,” they further stated.
However the MCA Kasee has defended himself saying that the contractor-Megaton Building and General contractors is to blame.
In an interview with Ghetto Radio News, Kasee says that the contractor has not been picking his calls forcing him in communication with the county government to terminate the contract.
