Narok County Commissioner Isaac Masinde has called on motorists to be vigilant while using the Maai Mahiu – Narok – Bomet highway as many people are expected to travel to witness the inauguration ceremony of the 5th President of Kenya William Ruto.
Masinde lamented that in the recent past, many grisly accidents that have claimed many lives have been witnessed along the highway.
He asked the drivers to follow the traffic regulations set and be careful when approaching black spot areas like Ntulele area, Duka Moja and Maai Mahiu area asking drivers to be more careful in rainy weather.
As the Chairman of the County Security team, the County Commissioner reiterated that the traffic police will mount traffic checks in several points so as to ensure all the vehicles using the road are in good condition.
“We expect many people from Kisii, Bomet and Narok who will attend the swearing in ceremony to use the road as from today night,” said the CC.
At the same time, the County Commissioner has lauded the residents for keeping peace after the elections, confirming that people were back to their normal businesses.
“We are happy that no incident was reported after the elections. The people were happy that they had elected leaders who will foster development in their regions,” he said.
The Narok Pastors’ forum led by Bishop Peter Nakola called on the residents to support the elected leaders led by President-Elect Dr William Ruto so that they can deliver good services to the residents.
“We as spiritual leaders support the leaders that God has chosen. Our main work now is to pray for them as they execute the assignment that the people of Kenya have given them,” he said.
Ramadhan Shaban, a Muslim youth leader also called on the youth to support the President elect and other elected leaders to perform their duties.
“We as young people are happy that the country has moved to the right direction. Despite our political differences, we have now come together to appreciate the leaders that God has given us,” he said.
