The Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) on Tuesday announced that it will give a cash reward of Sh100,000 to anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of road vandals.

Through a statement seen by Ureport, the authority stated that the government is spending a lot of money on infrastructure but the culture of vandalism is slowing down progress.

“The authority is giving out a reward of Sh100,000 to anyone who can provide reliable information leading to the arrest of these culprits and their partners in the illegal trade,” read the statement in part.

KURA added that vandalism of street lights, guard rails and road signs has been on the rise and in the last three months over 30 street poles worth Sh2.5million have been mowed down.

“We wish to condemn this unscrupulous and barbaric behavior which not only endangers the lives of road users but also renders the maintenance of roads expensive.

“Some of the roads most affected include; Thika Superhighway, Outer Ring Road, Ngong Road and Lang’ata Road,” stated KURA.

Despite the government working to ensure that most city roads are in good shape, some guard rails have already been tampered with as pedestrians opt not to use the designated footbridges to cross from one side of the road to another.
