Geoffrey Murage, a long-time resident, observed that the town looked extremely untidy and muddy during the rainy season but the situation has now changed and it is much easier to navigate around the town.

His sentiments were echoed by another resident, Martin Gatimu. “Initially, there was no space for pedestrians to walk and so they competed for the road with the vehicles especially during the rains. We can now walk safely in the improved walkways even when it is rainy.” He said, commending governor Waiguru for the initiative.

Zipporah Muriithi, a resident and business lady in the town also hailed the project pointing out that previously, business people had to incur losses during rainy seasons but this has changed. “The neat, well-maintained town has now encouraged local businesses to flourish, as the improved accessibility has drawn more customers to shops and establishments in the area.” She said.
