There was an image of a footbridge going round on social media. The bridge is in Bomet county, connecting Kinyang'a to Lelaitich localities in the region. It is in its worst conditions, endangering the lives of the locals who use the bridge the bridge to cross over with their livestock, farm produce and young children going to school. Various netizens called over the government to act right and straight away as the bridge has been rendered totally out of bounce.
But who is to blame for such poor infrastructure? Over the past few years, we have seen such poor bridges and roads, the things that our government should have total interest in, for the betterment of a mwananchi.
Lord Abraham Mutai, a vocal political blogger took to his official Twitter account to lash out political leaders who can't plan their priorities right. In his tweet which saw netizens storming the comments section to give out their views, Abraham said, "William Ruto and Rift valley leaders are always in church donating millions every weekend to corrupt conmen in church but they can't donate a million to fix a hazardous bridge in their backyard. Totally sideways priority ranking and the people are just ok."
Should our political leaders be blamed for such poor infrastructure? Kindly let's engage. Like this post, drop a comment and don't forget to follow me for more of such local news.
