Naivasha matatu owners association has threatened to mobilise members to down tools over the poor state of Moi South Lake Road.

The road that heads to Lake Naivasha, tourist hotels and the Olkaria geothermal fields has been in a horrible state for two years now, with the blame shifting on the agency mandated to rehabilitate it.

Peter Karanja from South Lake Travellers Sacco, said they would pull out their vehicles from the route.

"We have issued a one-week ultimatum to government to commence rehabilitation of the road or else we pull out of the route," he said.
