Mother nature destroys roads in Nakuru

Nakuru motorists have been warned against using some selective roads following heavy rains.

“We have cordoned off this section as our engineers investigate the cause of the collapse, with our initial probe pointing to possible underground activity (faultline),” Deputy Governor Eric Korir, who is the acting Roads CEC said.

The Deputy Governor who noted there might be a threat of rivers bursting their banks and overflowing the bridges cautioned motorists using the John Momanyi Road near Koinange Primary School in Shabaab area.

According to Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, heavy rains have increased water inflows into Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha.

“Consequently, the Lake is overflowing beyond the Lake Nakuru National Park boundary to the west. With the ongoing rains and current water levels, the County Government of Nakuru has issued a high alert to people living near Lake Nakuru, especially near Barut,” his statement reads.

“The County Government will immediately dispatch emergency response teams to map individual homes that are under imminent threat around the two lakes. The Count Government is working with local leaders to coordinate and put in place effective mitigation measures to prevent loss of life and property,” the Governor said.
