SEE ALSO :Traders repair roads after county fails“I operate Emali-Matiliku-Wote route and the matatu I drive has been bought through loan and with such a bad road our vehicles don’t give good returns since they often develop mechanical problems anytime,” one of the protesting drivers said. The road had been blocked few kilometers from Emali town, just before River Muoni. The enraged residents accused three MPs: Patrick Musimba (Kibwezi west), Daniel Maanzo (Makueni) and Joshua Kimilu (Kaiti) for not conveying their cries to the relevant authorities for the road to be upgraded. Emali/Mulala ward MCA Nichodemus Muthoka accused KERRA of poor workmanship that left the road in more pathetic state, threatening to stage major demonstrations next week if the road is not properly repaired.
