Kenya: Kitui Govt to Re-Carpet Mwingi Town Road At Sh27 Million

The Kitui county government will rehabilitate the main road in Mwingi town. Part of the road re-carpeting tender has been awarded to a company owned by Koki Musau, who lost the Mwingi Westparliamentary seat in the March 4, 2013 general election.

Musau said his section will cost Sh27 million. However, he refused to disclose more details on the project. For three days, Musau's workers have drained potholes, sewer lines and trenches and swept the road.

Mwingi Town MCA Bernard Sila welcomed the move to repair the road by the county government. "The road has been impassable for more than three years," he said.

Mwingi assistant deputy county commissioner David Wanyonyi described the road as an eye-sore and a big shame.

"Most of the tarmac on the road has peeled off leaving huge potholes. The governor should be informed that the road has become a big shame," said Wanyonyi.
