Kenya: Tunai Warns Contractors Over Shoddy Roadwork

NAROK Governor Samuel ole Tunai has warned road contractors against shoddy works on local roads.

"Most road contractors do shoddy work and just wait for the pay when tax payers want value for their money," he said.

Tunai was speaking after launching Ntulele-Kojonga, Abosi-Shartuka and Shartuka-Kirindoni roads on Thursday.

He said the county government has prioritised infrastructure development, especially construction of standard roads.

Tunai said the government is committed to building roads for farmers to access markets with their produce.

"We will not tolerate shoddy road works. Contractors should ensure they put up standard road infrastructure to accelerate the county's development," he said.

Tunai said contractors who deliver shoddy works will be forced to redo it at their own costs.

"We will not pay any shoddy works because we want locals to enjoy the fruits of devolution. The region has a potential for agriculture and tourism."
