Uhuru's CS given 4-weeks ultimatum

The time started ticking today morning for the CS to respond.

Led by Ugunja Constituency lawmaker Opiyo Wandayi, Mr Macharia has until early January or he faces the wrath of the residents who have since threatened to block the crucial and busy Nairobi-Kisumu-Busia highway.

"We are demanding the immediate completion of the busy Bondo-Siaya-Rangala road, which serves at least 3,000 motorists daily,” Mr Wandayi told reporters at Fuludhi Bridge along the Siaya-Rangala road.

Despite the assurance from the Kenya National Highways Authority’s (KeNHA) Mr Joachim Nyamwaro who works in the area that the road would be completed in time, Mr Wandayi has threatened to table a censure motion against CS Macharia, arguing that the delay is deliberate.

“We have fully paid the contractor who has vowed to complete the construction works in one week. We have also instructed him to tarmac the remaining 3km stretch as well as fill the potholes at his own cost,” he confirmed.
