The highway is one of the major government projects and was implemented at a cost of Sh30 billion, with construction that was scheduled to take place for around 3 years. 

On completion, the road is expected to boost the economy of the Mount Kenya region which produces two of Kenya’s main cash crops: tea and coffee. 

Now, showcasing part of the road, Nyeri Town Member of Parliament, Ngunjiri Wambugu has taken to his official Facebook page and shared some photos of Nyarugumu Kihuyo section.

Kenyans on social media on the other hand have been excited with most appreciating president Uhuru Kenyatta's effort to develop infrastructure in the country during his second term.

The state has been opting for Public-Private Partnerships in financing infrastructure projects in the country as a part of a wider plan not to burden the public with heavy loans that sometimes come with higher repayment terms. 


The road named Mau Mau road seeks to honour the role of Mau Mau freedom fighters in the liberation of Kenya from colonialists.
