Newly built Ksh 100M bridge collapses after heavy rains in Kajiado

Newly built multimillion bridge in Paai, Kajiado East, has collapsed due to heavy rains experienced in the area

The pillars of the bridge gave in to the flash floods last night and broke in the middle.

The Ksh100M bridge was launched last week by Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku in a colourful ceremony.

The Paai bridge, called an “inter-sub-counties connector”, links other parts of the county to Kinyawa Poka ward in Kajiado East.

The bridge was built after the number of vehicles, livestock and people washed away by the river increased.

The main road connects three wards Matapato North, Mbirikani/Eselenkei and Kinyawa Pokato to Mashuru town,the nearest centre in the west with medical facilities, a livestock market and other government services.
