Wide roads and narrow minds
We have a caring Kitchen Cabinet, whose members have always emphasised on road safety, especially at the funerals of the victims where they also put their mouths in to gear without engaging their brains.
What was starkly clear from the announcement was how reactive the Cabinet, and generally the policy makers, are. Road safety is not an issue that should only be addressed after a spate of accidents, or after nature and its attendant disasters have acted up and made our roads impassable.
Thika road is now an eight-lane superhighway constructed by China’s Sinohydro Corporation East Africa.
Kenyan drivers need refresher courses to be able to use these new roads with caution.
When news came that the Kitchen Cabinet had discussed road carnage, there was a collective sigh of relief from many Kenyans who had been wondering why this issue had been put on the back burner.http://www.nation.co.ke/Features/DN2/Wi
