Bungoma county legislators have today held peaceful demonstrations following the rise in the incidents of truck accidents. Led by Kabuchai Constituency Mp, Majimbo Kalasinga, the law makers have called upon CS Kipchumba Murkomen to look into the matter citing that road cannot support the transport of heavy trucks due to it's small size.
The MP's held the demonstrations on the Chwele Lwakhakha highway. They keenly noted that so far the highway has caused the deaths of over 30 boda boda boda service providers. The leaders have in unison agreed to block the highway from being used by truck drivers until their cries are heard. They said that the highway cannot continue to take away lives and hence they choose to speak up , calling for the Ministry of Roads to take action.
The leaders have urged CS Murkomen to find other means with which the trucks will deliver the goods to Malaba without passing through the highway.
