For instance, the PALA-UHURU pathway in Rachuonyo constituency has been carried away by water and the transport services between the two points have been halted.
The BODA BODA operator from Uhuru markets, Pala market, Kandiege market and Kodula market are now threatening to demonstrate and decline to pay taxes to the county government until the bad roads are addressed.
They have also called upon the area MCA, Paul Ongoro Wamunga to address the PALA-UHURU pathway that is now impassable
According to the area activist Mijoge Mijoge, the group has given the area MCA and the county administration 72 hours to address the issue or call for massive demonstration
We are giving Hon. #Paul Ongoro Wamunga and #HomaBayCounty Administration 72 hours to address the #UHURU-PALA pathway that has been carried by waters. No address will call for serious consequences including demonstrations and a decline to pay taxes by boda boda operators,” said Mijoge Mijoge on his tweet
