City bypass deal a win-win situation

By Kibet Benard | November 5th 2015

The recent signing of an agreement between the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) on Nairobi’s Southern bypass is a milestone of sorts.

The deal that unlocked a stalemate over the construction of the Southern by pass was signed ob Friday at KWS headquarters.

This has effectively set the ball rolling for the completion of the works.

The signing of the deal by both the boards of KeNHA and KWS is evidence of enhanced cooperation between quasi-government bodies to enhance project implementation by the Government.

The KeNHA-KWS deal is a win-win situation. It has ensured that the KWS is fully compensated for the land to ensure wildlife moves freely while KeNHA will be able to complete the road in record time.

Its imperative to note that KeNHA is undertaking reafforestation works on Ngong Forest as part of the Southern bypass works.

The bypass will see the boost of our economy and ease the movement of goods and services through our roads as stated by KeNHA board chair Erastus Mwongera and Director General Peter Mundinia.
