Last week’s revelation by Roads minister Franklin Bett that the ongoing heavy rains have caused Sh10 billion damage on our roads (Nation, May 11) left me asking what our roads are made off, especially those by local contractors.
The disclosure came as we boasted of new infrastructure –Thika superhighway AND Southern and Northern by-passes.
The roads which maintained by the recently ISO certified city council are in a pathetic state. Does it mean local contractors are incompetent or use substandard material to build these roads?
