The residents of Kapng’etich, Lelmokwo and Sigot areas in Chesumei constituency, Nandi County have decried the state of roads in the region which are impassable following the heavy downpour. A section of residents from these areas who managed to speak to West FM cited the pathetic state of Lelmokwo-Sigot road from Kapng’etich junction which has paralyzed transport services thus forcing people to walk, a distance of about 7 kilometres.
The road has remained in that poor state for some time and residents have asked for answers, to know when it will be tarmacked. They have urged the area MP Wilson Kogo to visit and see the road’s poor state.
The road is a major road, connecting Nandi to Turbo-Kapng’etich trading centres to Lelmokwo all the way to Ndalat and Turbo in Uasin Gishu County. If tarmacked, it will help to ease transport and open up the areas to other regions, coupled with opening up business opportunities and subsequent economic development.
