Narok County government led by governor Samuel Ole Tunai is on spot after photos of unmaintained roads exposing farmer's products to rotting in their farms resurfaced online. County governments were mandated the responsibility of maintaining rural and feeder roads in Devolution.
Many counties have been reporting that their roads are unmaintained leaving people in trouble while transporting their products.
Most people are not aware of which of the two governments was accorded the role to maintain various roads and most of them have been channelling their grievances to the national government. Although, there are some roads which were mandated for national government to maintain, most rural roads are left for the county government.
In a post shared by Nation media on Facebook, Farmers were spotted pulling already toppled tractor which was carrying their potatoes to the market.
Many Netizens were not pleased by the scenario in Narok County and others too expressed the situation of roads in their various counties across the country. Here are some of their comments.
