Narok Town Bodaboda Riders Get New Shades As Repair and Maintenance of 23 Roads Identified For Upgrade Across the Town Continue

On 13th of February, 2024, His Excellency Governor Patrick Ole Ntutu commissioned boda boda shades and inspected ongoing road maintenance works across Narok town. 

The eight boda boda shades that His Excellency the Governor commissioned today, were a fulfillment of the promise that he made when he attended the Narok Boda Boda Association Annual General Meeting last year at the William Ole Ntimama Stadium where he promised to install boda boda shades at various pick-up points across Narok town. These shades are strategically located at different stages, including Oltalet, ODM market, Narok Municipality bus terminus, and the Total area, among other locations.

While commissioning the shades, Governor Ntutu assured of the county government’s support for the sector — acknowledging the contributions of the sector to the economic growth and development of the County. “Already, we have reduced the monthly sticker charges from Kshs 300 to ksh.200 to cushion our boda boda operators during these harsh economic times,” added Governor Ntutu.

The ongoing repairs and maintenance of the 23 roads was necessitated by the heavy rains that destroyed parts of the roads thereby rendering them impassable and posing significant security threat to residents of Narok town. The county government of Narok, through the department of roads, transport and public works, is working round the clock to ensure that all the ongoing road maintenance works are completed in time.

Today, Governor Ntutu inspected some of these roads namely the Milimani Junction -Fanaka road, Nyawira-Redeemed Church road, Uhuru area, Redeemed Church-Majengo, Mongare among other roads. With an efficient road network, the County Government of Narok is opening up the county for enhanced trade and development.

In Olpusimoru Ward, Narok North Sub County, several roads are also undergoing repair and maintenance including: Shapartarakwa-Olenchoko junction road, Olenchoko-Kamurar road, Kamurar-Olposimoru road, Olpusimoru center-Enkusero center road, Enkusero center-Daraja Mungu road and Olenosira-Entiany road in Olokurto Ward.

The County Government of Narok has been focusing on improving critical road infrastructure within Narok North Sub County as outlined in the County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP). The Sub county is a major contributor to the county’s food basket, boasting of significant production of wheat, maize, and potatoes. Prioritizing these roads will not only transform the region’s fortunes but also enhance agricultural activities in the region.
