President Uhuru Kenyatta has intervened after six farmers from Murang’a County wrote to him complaining that the Kenya Rural Roads Authority (Kerra) had illegally cut a public access road across their land.
The farmers are Julius Kihato, Nahashon Ndung’u, Naomi Wanjiku, Esbon Mucheru, Habel Karanja, and James Irungu from Kamuiru village.
In the letter dated April 26, which was sent to State House through Murang’a County Commissioner Mohammed Barre, the six sought help from the Head of State, saying that administrators and politicians from Murang’a had ganged up with Kerra to build the road through their land.
“After the letter reached the attention of the President, we were directed to go to the ground and establish its authenticity and offer an immediate solution,” Murang’a South Deputy County Commissioner Mawira Mungania told Nation Africa.
Mr. Mungania said senior government officers drawn from the regional headquarters were on the case and it was decided that the land be surveyed and a report filed.
