It is now clear that Mike Sonko has taken charge at the Capital and seems his powers are beyond those of an ordinary Governor, he comes across as more powerful than Kidero, what with government roads agency KeNHA obeying an order he issued just hours after being sworn into office.
Governor Sonko had demanded that the roads agency take necessary and immediate steps to remove punitive and uncessary speed pumps in major super highways.
Now, today KeNHA has issued the statement below to all media houses oblging to Sonko’s directive.
KeNHA would like to sensitize motorists and stakeholders that the Authority is undertaking maintenance works to standardise humps along Thika Superhighway to enhance smooth traffic flow and safety of pedestrians.
We urge motorists and pedestrians to cooperate with traffic marshals along the maintenance sites to ensure smooth traffic flow.
Further, the Authority wishes to announce that plans are underway to replace all the humps along the superhighway, bearing public procurement procedures, and availability and allocation of resources to undertake the works.
Public procurement procedures for various sites including Survey, Ruaraka and Witeithie have already commenced, and the Authority is in consultation with the respective stakeholders in undertaking this process.
