The residents are appealing to president Uhuru Kenyatta to help solve the conflict that has risen between residents and the contractors.The residents say that they need to be compensated for their land and damages being caused during the construction.There have been several attempts to solve the issue all of which have failed.According to the report aired by Kameme FM at 12pm, residents of the region have raised their outcry saying that their lives are going to be affected negatively if nothing is done.
Despite appreciating president Uhuru for initiating the development project, the residents being affected are now left in tears as their hopes of compensation are slowly fading.
