Tassia residents threaten demonstrations over shoddy construction of roads
A section of residents in Tassia Embakasi area have threatened to hold demonstrations against poor roads and drainage in the area.
The residents claim that a contractor who was developing the road entering Tassia estate is doing the job at a snail’s speed further hurting them.
They further claim that the slow and shoddy construction of the road has led to burst sewer lines that are currently endangering their lives.
“Our biggest problem is poor roads, followed by the burst sewer lines. We also do not have water for domestic use,” cried a resident.
They claim that their efforts to reach their elected leaders have been futile.
“Our elected leaders, the MCA and and MP have neglected us. They have refused to take action despite us reaching out to them several times,” they cried.
Tassia estate is in Embakasi in Embakasi ward, Embakasi East constituency.
The elected leaders are Embakasi East MP Babu Owino and Embakasi ward MCA Michael Ogada.
