Migosi Residents In Kisumu Decry Poor Drainage System And Roads


A section of Migosi ward traders and residents now want the county government of Kisumu to repair and maintain drainage systems and roads within the ward.

The residents claim that most roads within the ward are inaccessible with a lot of potholes affecting their businesses and livelihoods.

They cry that roads are in deplorable conditions with overflowing sewage.

Daniel Omondi, a bodaboda rider within Migosi told Ghetto Radio that their attempts to reach the area MCA over the matter have become futile.

“In this ward, we elected an MCA who is not productive. The area MCA has not done what we expected and we have tried reaching him without success. When it rains, we have to wait for the sewage to flow first before we can use it since the roads are full of potholes,” said Daniel.

The inaccessible roads within Migosi ward include, Forems- Greenview Road, Greenview –Lolwe Road, Gudka Road and the road leading to Migosi Primary.


Charles Ouko on the other side added that in that ward they also do not have street lights a situation that affects their bodaboda business largely.

“As you can see, in this ward we don’t have street lights. The current ones are not functioning like this one over here. This forces us to close our businesses at 7pm due to insecurity,” says Charles.

They appeals to the county government to fix the poor roads and also erect functioning street lights in the area.

If this is implemented, the residents claim that they will be able to extend their working hours from 7pm to 9:30pm.
