Likuyani Member of Parliament  in Kakamega County,Mugabe Innocent Maino  has castigated the  Director general  of the Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KeRRA),following the delayed  construction of the Matunda-Brigadier Road.

Speaking to Hubzmedia ,Mugabe said that the poor condition of the road has caused damage and hindered transportation between the three counties of  Bungoma ,Kakamega and Uasin Gishu .

“The residents of this area and Tongaren Bungoma County are facing a major  transportation  challenge ,this is a critical link road  supporting thousands of livelihoods in the  three counties , however despite KeRRA having awarded a tender to  M/s JIANGSU construction company  ,works on this road  have not  commenced thus  affecting daily  activities”Noted Mugabe.

As the area  member of parliament it has been difficult to allocate resources on this road since its  tender  has  already been awarded by KeRRA and therefore it would raise audit  queries if we were to use NG-CDF to allocate  further resources, however  we have joined  hands  with the   area  residents and contributed money towards  the murruming  of this road ahead of the anticipated heavy Rains ,Added  Mugabe.

The Mp further questioned why the contractor was paid up front, but no work had begun yet, and demanded  KeRRA Director General to with immediate effect issue the contract to another capable contractor.
