President Uhuru Kenyatta has instructed officials of the Ministry of Interior and the County Government of Nakuru to open up an access road for pedestrians to Lake Naivasha.
The President gave the order after he met with residents of Naivasha who complained that access roads to the lake have been blocked by private developers.
The President said an access road must be opened for the residents especially those who fish in the lake.
The President, who was accompanied by Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua addressed the residents as he left Enaishipa Resort where he opened the 2016 Employer’s Summit, which was attended by representatives from more than 34 African countries.
He urged Naivasha residents to live in peace with each other and to reject politicians who try to incite them along tribal lines.
The President said Naivasha plays a big role in Kenya’s economy and will play even a bigger role once the Standard Gauge Railway is extended unto the town.
