Leaders opt for divine intervention over poor state of road

A section of religious leaders in Narok County held prayers along the Siyiapei- Melili- Olchoro road, calling on divine intervention to prevail upon the county government to upgrade the road.

The leaders led by Bishop Danson Mbaila of Kenya Assemblies of God (KAG) matched along the road, anointing it with oil as a sign of inviting divine intervention for their prayers to be answered.

“We have decided to retreat for prayers along these roads instead of demonstrating. We believe that God will hear us and touch our leaders so that they can fast track the construction of this road,” said the bishop.

The church leader wondered why the roads under the National Government category were being upgraded while those that fall under the county government docket remained in bad condition affecting traders and farmers in the area.

“We have witnessed many roads being upgraded by Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KeRRA), but the county roads like our road here, Olchoro –  Melili – Siyiapei road, has remained in bad condition despite this place being a rich agricultural area,” said Bishop Mbaila.

The bishop who was accompanied by hundreds of faithful matched along the road making a loud prayer as they made several stops for the reading of the word; with a common belief that God will intervene.

Ewaso Nyiro South Development Authority (ENSDA) chairperson Selela Ole Mwanik, who is also a prominent farmer in Melili blamed the county government under the leadership of Governor Samuel Tunai for continuously collecting tax from the farmers yet failed to improve on the roads.

“Over 50 lorries use this road everyday transporting potatoes, cabbages, wheat and barley. Each of the Lorries pays Sh. 6,000 as tax to the county government yet we have not seen any development projects in this area,” said Ole Mwanik.

Sironka Ole Oyie, a prominent farmer in the area said during rainy seasons, when schools are opening, the children in boarding schools are forced to trek for over 40 kilometers to access the main road as vehicles cannot access the road.

“The school children take two to three days before getting to the Narok- Maai Mahiu highway where they can easily get vehicles. This exposes our children to danger as they are forced to look for accommodation in strangers’ homesteads when night comes,” said Ole Oyie.

The residents are optimistic that after the prayer, the roads will be made and enable easy transportation to the market.

This comes only a day after the residents of Sakutiek area thanked the government for making the Siyiapei- Sakutiek road.
