Major City road renamed Raila Odinga Way

Share

Nairobi County Government has finally renamed major city road Mbagathi Way, Raila Odinga Way.

The renaming follows ratification of a motion by Nairobi County Assembly in October.

The motion was sponsored by Makongeni MCA Peter Imwatok who exacted that the road be named after the former Prime Minister.

The MCA argued that Mr. Odinga should be recognized for his contribution to the democratic and economic development of Kenya.

“He fought for a greater democratic space, good governance, rule of law, and development of infrastructure against innumerable odds”, Iwamatok said.

Raila Odinga commissioned construction of the road in 2005 when he served as Minister for Roads and Public Works.

The move has elicited mixed reactions online with some Kenyans saying that the former Premier deserves better.
