LEADERS in Narok have expressed their dissatisfaction with the poor state of roads in the county. Led by Daniel Taleng'o ole Kiptunen, they said at the weekend the dilapidated roads are an impediment to the development of the area.
Kiptunen, who is vying for governor's seat, said: "Some of the roads are in a pathetic condition because of the heavy rains currently pondering the area."
Addressing political rallies in Transmara district, Kiptunen promised to improve the roads if elected in the general election. He said due to the poor road network in the area, farming activities have been greatly hampered as farmers could not access markets for their produce.
"It is sad that the farmers cannot access the inputs and once they harvest their produce they can't access markets"he said. Kiptunen noted most of the roads are almost unmotorable due to its state yet it is located in high potential area.
"The road has made the farmers record losses and the state should improve it as matter of priority," said Kiptunen. The aspirant said that if this is done, it will improve the living standards of the residents as the area is leading in maize, wheat, barley and potatoes production.
