The Mai Mahiu-Narok road was damaged as a result of volcanic activity-KENHA boss Peter Mundinia

New revelations on Mai Mahiu-Narok road damage

The director stated that the road sink was as a result of volcanic activity as Suswa area.

It had been reported earlier that the road that has been currently closed collapsed as a result of heavy rains that resulted to flooding.

A section of Suswa that sank weeped away a schoolgirl whose body is currently being looked for. Other three students were rescued and rushed to hospital.

Following the unfortunate incident, motorists from Western and Nyanza provinces were directed to use Kericho-Nakuru road to access the city.

Speaking at the scene, the engineer revealed that a contractor had already been deployed to the area to construct makeshift bypasses to help save the current mess.

“The Mai Mahiu road was damaged as a result of volcanic activity. We can say rains catalyzed the destruction. However nobody can tell why the volcanic activity happened in that manner. If the development was caused by water alone, then we would have seen the road cut, but not the extent of this fault line. As you aware Suswa is in the Rift Valley and volcanic activities are still taking place in Suswa. We cannot be sure that tomorrow volcanic activities will take place in Suswa, it could be somewhere else,” said Engineer Mundia.
