Alfred Mutua’s 33 km Makutano ma Mwala to Kithimani Road continues to draw mixed reactions. The construction took only 3 months, but not everyone is happy with the work that was done.
Some sections of the road have started being repaired after potholes developed, with engineers saying it will only get worse. Judging by TV interviews, residents are happy with the work, given the fact that the 3 months ago, that road was dust and mud. Is it a case of Kenyans settling for less, or is there a political machinery that is out to bring Mutua down?
Former KTN sports news anchor Saddique Shaban took a drive along the road and other Machakos roads over the weekend, and this is what he found out.
