KeNHA indicates that the crack might have been a result of the ongoing rains, and has promised to update Kenyans in case there is any progress.

"Further, the area has in the past been affected by similar earth movements. As KeNHA embarks on restoration works at the affected area, all road users plying the Mai Mahiu - Narok route are advised to use alternative routes,"

The motorists have therefore been advised to use the following routes:

  1. Narok - Kisiriri - Mau Summit - Njoro Turn off (B18) Road, to join Nakuru and other destinations.
  2. Narok - Bomet - Kaplong (B6) Road and connect to Kaplong - Kericho (B7) Road.
