Kasarani-Mwiki residents face their transport hussle Thursday morning as strike take different turn.
The disabled transportation in the area started off on Monday when matatu operators and residents demanded good road in the area.
Residents working in town used boda bodas while others were forced to walk.
The Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) in their recent tweets confirmed that the contractor is on the site and work to commence immediately.
“We engaged with the Public representatives from Kasarani yesterday and following lengthy consultations it was agreed works to start soon we are preparing for the tendering process .Meanwhile our contractor is on site doing everything possible to make the road passable,” KURA wrote.
On Wednesday, a young man was killed when the police fired teargas canisters and alleged live bullets on residents.
Political leaders have taken to social media to condemn the acts by the police officers in dealing with the situation.
Nairobi women rep Esther Passaris said that the act by the officers is against the Constitution.
“Article 37 of Kenya’s Constitution guarantees citizens the right to assemble, demonstrate, picket, and present petitions to public authorities. What @PoliceKe did in #Kasarani was a gross violation of these rights and it must be held accountable for the lives lost,” she wrote.
KURA is yet to start ‘working’ on the roads to make them passable after the heavy rains.
