At least one more week of inconvenience for citizens, residents and tourists in Malindi, due to the closure of the central Lamu Road for the long-awaited resurfacing works on the stretch from the Kenya Commercial Bank to the Oasis Mall (Naivas Supermarket).
The work had become necessary after rains worsened the already poor state of the road.
Lamu Road has the status of a 'highway' and that is why it is under the maintenance of the Kenya National Highway Authority (KENHA), so to speak of the central government and not the county or Malindi municipality.
The KENHA yesterday let it be known on its social channels that 'the intention of the team is to open the Karen Blixen-Star Dust section to the public by the end of the week, depending on weather conditions'.
In the meantime, the alternative roads are less and less practicable, due to mud and rain.
However, it seems crucial that everything be ready before the weekend of 9-10 December and its bridge (Tuesday 12 December is a national holiday, the anniversary of the country's independence), which will see the arrival of many tourists, particularly locals.
Between roads, landfills and basic infrastructure, Malindi would need a complete restyling, in order to remain competitive as a tourist destination, compared to other growing destinations on the Kenyan coast itself, not only the more attractive Watamu and Diani, but also, for example, Kilifi, which is conquering more and more international tourists, young people and families.
Despite the political crisis and the wait for elections. bis, the government does not stop and continues its plans to upgrade the roads along the coast.
