The Kenya National Highways Authority requires Ksh 2 billion to repair damaged road infrastructure in various parts of the country.
The chairperson of KENHA board Wangai Ndirangu said the money shall only be used in places where urgent measures are required.
Ndirangu was speaking in Murang’a during an inspection tour of roads in Mathioya and Kigumo constituencies.
The transport sector in Mathioya and Kigumo constituencies has been worst hit by the rains with the roads and bridges being cut off.
According to KeNHA Board chair Wangai Ndirangu who was accompanied by KeNHA Director General Peter Mundinia, the organization has so far spent 500Million shillings to rehabilitate roads in areas where mobility has been curtailed by the rains.
Mundinia, on the other hand, said they were short of cash to repair all the damaged infrastructure but were engaging the government in a comprehensive assessment of the damage.
