Stalled Sh1.5 Billion Road Angers Farmers

Construction of a major road linking Eldoret and Kitale hangs in balance because of controversies between contractors over the tender. The road is to be constructed at a cost of more than Sh1.5 billion. Residents of Eldoret North and Cheranganyi constituencies now want the Minister for Roads Franklin Bett to explain why the road is yet to be done more than four months after the tendering process was completed."The road is in pathetic state yet we understand some people are quarreling over kickbacks," said the residents led by Kipkorir Menjo.
