Meanwhile, the residents of Transmara East and West have a reason to smile following the completion of two crucial roads in the area.
The upgrading to bitumen of the 43- kilometer Kilgoris-Shartuka- Esoit-Murkan-Emurua-Dikirr roads at a cost of Sh1.3 billion which is at 97 per cent complete will see residents have easy movement between the two sub- counties.
The road whose construction began in 2017 is nearly complete except for construction of culverts and finishing of the edges, yet to be done due to concrete electric poles erected on the edges.
Resident roads Engineer Stephen Musindyi said efforts to have the power company to remove the electric poles have fallen on deaf ears as the regional bosses have allegedly said that they have no mandate to remove them without authority from the headquarters.
The upgrading to bitumen standard of the Olochabasei- Kabolecho – Mogondo and Mogondo Emurua Dikirr roads which is also ninety seven percent complete.
Mr Achoki cautioned residents against vandalizing road signs. The two roads will open up the agricultural lit areas and help farmers to market their produce and improve their livelihoods
