Transport along the busy Nairobi Mombasa highway was paralyzed for hours this morning after truck drivers protested poor roads leading to ballast quarries of Athi river, Machakos County.
The agitated truck drivers blocked the Athi-river-Kitengela interchange causing a heavy traffic snarl-up for 5hours.Irate drivers say that despite paying cess to the county government of Machakos, the roads to the quarries are in a pathetic state and have been rendered impassable during this rainy season. They further claim they have been blocked by powerful cartels from using the Syokimau, Mlolongo road after it was tarmacked.
