A section of Kuria residents now wants the national government to construct and maintain Kehancha-Lolgorian-Narok-Nairobi road to open up rural centres for trade, besides cutting the cost of transport to Nairobi.
Led by ODM gubernatorial running mate Dr. Joseph Mahiri, the locals said the road which passes through the four different clans of the Banyabasi, Bakira, Bairege and Bagumbe will also help their sons and daughters to be employed on the project.
Mahiri who is Dr. Ochillo Ayacko’s running mate said the road will serve as a transit to the Maasai Mara National Reserve and Serengeti, boosting trade and tourism between Kenya and Tanzania.
The residents who were speaking in Kugitura in Bukira North of Kuria East asked Azimio La Umoja presidential candidate Raila Amollo Odinga to consider Kuria region in his administration when he is elected like other regions where him (Raila) and Uhuru Kenyatta keeps launching road projects.
From Kehancha to Nairobi through Kisii consumes almost seven hours unlike the proposed shortest route which will cover only two hours.
