, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 19 – Residents of Mwiki and adjacent estates have this morning been forced to trek for long distance to catch up with their matatus after local operators went on strike over poor state of Mwiki-Kasarani Road.

The strike which started early on Thursday morning paralysed operations on the road as matatu operators demanded to be addressed by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

The motorists on the road have been complaining of the bad state of the stretch for almost three months but their complaints have yet to be satisfactorily addressed.

It is the third time in a year that the matatu operators are blocking and boycotting business over the bad state of the road.
