Kudos KeRRA - The state of roads in Nairobi's slums has improved

By Javin Ochieng | January 12th 2018

I want to take this opportunity to thank the Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KeRRA) for the work they're doing - Starting up most roads projects in the informal settlements of Nairobi.

In the past, it was hard for informal dwellers to get basic services from the government because of the poor state of roads.

Most sick people had to be carried from their houses to the main roads because ambulances would not access these areas. Crime increased because police and fire engines could not access inner slum areas.

Today, most of the slum areas in Nairobi are accessible because of the good job KeRRA is doing.

National Government should continue supporting KeRRA in order to implement more road projects in our slums.

Lastly, I am truly encouraging KeRRA staff to continue doing a good job and improving state of the roads in Nairobi slums.
