The Troubles of Mombasa Road

Mombasa road has been described by some Kenyans as a disaster after the corona Virus Pandemic. They relate the walking on the road as swimming while driving is likened to sailing owing to the pool of water flooding the road.

According to Boniface Mwangi, a Kenyan influential personality, he wrote to his twitter account that ''We are going to start swimming in this pool of muddy water to kill time. I thank President Uhuru Kenyatta for providing free swimming ponds along Mombasa Road. Instead of getting angry because there is huge traffic, just swim in the muddy pond and calm yourself.''

As if that is not enough, there seems to be a never ending traffic congestion. The railway line from Syokimau does not seem to be of benefit to the people since they stay in the traffic for hours before reaching CBD. The official Twitter account for the matatu road users in Kenya had sent a message claiming that there is no clear line of driving in Mombasa Road and that anyone can drive at any line.

This tragedy follows due to the construction of the Mombasa Road Expressway. Will the traffic end any time soon?
