What do the rains have to do with Nairobi jam?
It took me 3 hours to get home yesterday from Industrial area, a journey that can take me 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the route I take.
With a colleague we decided to go round Likoni road, Jogoo Road, to town then Valley Road to Ngong road because Enterprise road we normally use to Nyayo Stadium was terrible and from previous experience we thought the other route would be better.
We reached Landies road when it was already dark, many people where walking to Jogoo Road to catch Matatus (public transport). After passing the City center the other side of town was ok. Enterprise Road has become a nightmare making getting to work and out of Industrial area a major problem that should be sorted out as soon as possible.
The other problem with the rains is pedentrians sometimes walk on the road because the side walks get maddy.
When will this nightmare end?
