Kirinyaga County makes progress in roads rehabilitation, covers 225 km

Kirinyaga County Governor Anne Waiguru has announced that her administration has already rehabilitated 225 km of roads of the 500 km earmarked for this financial year under the Nyorosha Barabara Mashinani program.

The program involves rural access roads among them ones in the expansive Mwea irrigation scheme. The governor said that the aim is to achieve well drained all-weather roads within Kirinyaga County, in order to enhance accessibility and aid smooth movement of produce from the farms to the markets.

Waiguru launched Nyorosha Barabara Mashinani program during her last term where she managed to murram about 500km and grade more than 2,500 others. She pledged to ensure that the county’s in-house road construction equipment was in good condition and fuelled as required.

The County Executive Committee Member for Roads, Transport, Public Works, Housing and Infrastructure, Jared Migwi, said that they intend to complete the 500kms by next month before the expected long rains. He said that out of the 225km covered so far, 105km have been murramed while the rest have been graded. Graveling of the rest is ongoing.

Speaking during a site visit to one of the roads under rehabilitation in Kariti Ward, the area MCA Jeremiah Makimi, said that the promises made to the electorate during the campaigns are now being fulfilled and he is happy to do play his part as roads in the ward get rehabilitated.

“For a long time the roads in Kariti have been impassable during the rainy seasons. I am pleased that together with Governor Waiguru, we are finally going to get well drained all weather roads not just in my ward but across the county”, said Makimi.

Erastus Gathumbi, another resident of Kariti said that they are happy because Governor Waiguru has gone back to fulfil her election campaign pledges where she promised to improve the state of their roads.

To improve on efficiency of the in-house roads program, Waiguru during her last term procured road construction equipment that include five graders, 10 trucks-20tons, two excavators, one low bed/loader, one backhoe, two roller-compactors and one water bowser.

The county residents have welcomed the ongoing program saying that it will reduce cost of production for farm produce since it will be cheaper to transport farm inputs and produce.
