NAIROBI—Kenya Rural Roads Authority (Kerra) has received a complaint from a resident of Mandera North seeking details on the state of the roads in his constituency.

In the letter through the law firm of Bonbegi & Co. Advocates, Qureish Abdi Habashow is seeking to be furnished with a list of all the road done by Kerra between 2016-2022 in the expansive constituency as well as the firms contracted, dates of all the tenders and the evaluation reports.

“The information being sought herein above is crucial to the wellbeing of the residents living in Mandera North,” Mr Habashow says in the letter copied to the Commission on Administrative Justice, The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

Mr Habashow says the Constitution grants citizens the right to petition government agencies and that the residents of Mandera North are keen on taking stock of the infrastructural development in the area.

“We kindly urge your good organisation to facilitate our client with the information sought. They undertake to comply with any requirements needed in ensuring the information is provided to them,” the letter reads in part. Bashir Abdullahi is the area legislator.

Mr Habashow says his home area has been marginalised for long and the roads are in terrible state. He has given Kerra 21 days to provide him with the information sought.
