Poor State of Roads: Locals Team Up To Push A Stuck Hearse in Kericho East

Residents living along the remote Londiani-Kamwingi road on Sunday afternoon teamed up to push a mud-trapped Hearse. Due to the heavy downpour, the road connecting Kamwingi from Londiani Township was left in an otherwise impassable state. A section of mourners attending the funeral service were forced to join in to aid in the push.

The Hearse is believed to be headed to a burial ceremony near Kamwingi. Notably, during the funeral service, mourners expressed their anger towards their leaders for failing to ensure improved transport connectivity. Further, they termed Kipkelion East Member of Parliament Hon. Joseph Limo's leadership as incompetent.

A few months ago, residents in Kipkelion East were promised accessible road network this year. Following a previous meeting of all Kipkelion Members of County Assembly (MCA's), the health sector as well as the transport system were prioritized. The proposal would see the Londiani-Kamwingi-Hill Tea road tarmacked.

However, several months into the year, the road is far from being constructed. While speaking during the funeral proceeding, a mourner believed to be vying for next year's MCA seat challenged Kipkelion East leaders to copy from the complying Kipkelion West leadership.

In Kipkelion West, residents living in remote areas have widely been granted access to effective transportation system as well as electricity through the last-mile projects.
