The road has been in a bad state for a long period of time and residents have had to walk to Thika road since vehicles could not access the area.
They are angry over the fact that their Member of Parliament Mercy Gakuya has done nothing to improve the state of the road.
The roads were blocked with lit bonfires around Sunton area as early as 5 am as the matatu operators chanted for reforms paralyzing transport in the area.
The Kasarani Mwiki road is in bad state but this is not the case on ground right now
1. The road is currently closed so there's no way that image is correct
2. All School buses are painted yellow, yours? https://t.co/gFR2qOk4XT

This is not the first time that the matatu operators have taken to the streets to complain about the poor state of the road.
