Residents of Chiga and Kibos in Kisumu East are living in fear of a looming collapse of Kibos bridge that links Kisumu town with its environs.
They say the bridge on River Kibos that also connects Kisumu East and Muhoroni sub-counties could crumble after the ground started disintegrating on one side on Tuesday.
A spot check by Nation revealed a huge hole underneath the bridge as a result of the crumbling earth.
A heavy downpour on Monday is said to have contributed to the disintegration.
Some locals claimed that some unscrupulous people are scooping sand around the bridge, thus causing more damage.
