Kenyatta re-launch the Mtongwe ferry in Mombasa

The second way will decongest traffic in the coastal city

14-03-2017 by redazione

Another step forward by the Kenyan government to decongest Mombasa traffic, waiting for the ring roads that connect the city to the airport Mombasa-Malindi and South Coast.
Yesterday, President Uhuru Kenyatta with his Deputy William Ruto, inaugurated the Mtongwe ferry, reopened after 23 years and a serious misfortune behind him who made 272 dead. Today, the service will allow small and medium-sized vehicles and, above all people to take advantage of a shorter sea route and economical than the current Likoni and avoid congesting the main artery of the city and making direct tuk-tuk and boda boda in that direction.
During the ceremony, which is part of the many infrastructural innovations that the Government has set up on the coast in the upcoming national elections, Kenyatta reiterated the interest of his party to conquer the coastal regions, promettendone development as has never happened in previous years and, after devolution, with local governments entrusted to the opposition.
During the inauguration, the controversy erupted with the controversial governor of Mombasa Hassan Joho, who was prevented from attending the event.
"Joho must end to follow me everywhere - joked Kenyatta - like it was my wife."
We are sure that from here to August Kenyatta will return to the coast to launch or open other projects.
