President Uhuru Kenyatta made an impromptu inspection visit of the (NMS) new bitumen blending plant on Kangundo Road on Friday evening.
The President, who was accompanied by Infrastructure CS James Macharia and NMS Director Mohammed Badi, witnessed the processing, loading and application of bitumen.
The blending plant, constructed in a record two months by NMS is a 3,000 tonnes per day facility, an amount of bitumen adequate for paving 3 kilometers of road daily.
"The bitumen that you will process here will be used to make roads in Mukuru, Kibera, Mathare and in all corners of Nairobi," the President said.
Once again, the head of State renewed his commitment to ensure every ward within Nairobi City County has a modern hospital so as to decongest existing health facilities especially Kenyatta National Hospital and Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital.
