Several buildings and properties in Karatina valued at millions of shillings are set for demolition in the ongoing construction of Kenol-Sagana-Marua dual carriage on the Great North highway.
Kenya national Highway Authority (Kenya) director-general Peter Mudinia said several buildings on the left side of town will be brought down to have way for the road construction. Among businesses to be brought down are OmegaMaguna and Maathai supermarkets,Total, Mogas and Oha psteol stations.
A section of Karatina Girls high school, Badicho farmers co-operative society and several commercial buildings in the town center will also be affected. The 84-kilometre road will cut across the Karatina town and it will not be deviated away as it was directed by the director-general.
He added that all they were going to do is to expand the existing network and that would, of course , call for some structures to be pulled down. Buildings situated on the right side of the road would not be affected by the demolition.
