The Kenya National Highways Authority (KENHA) has swung into action after floods paralyzed transport along the busy Mombasa road. 

In a Sunday, November 28 statement seen by K24 Digital, KENHA said that it had dispatched excavators to open up the drainage system. 

“In light of recent floods along Uhuru Highway and Mombasa Road (A8), the Nairobi Expressway project team has dispatched excavators to open up the drainage and dredging in the affected sections,” KENHA said in a statement. 

The government agency further apologized for inconveniences caused to road users as operations go on to remedy the situation. 

"The flooded areas are also being barricaded to enhance safety. KeNHA regrets any inconveniences caused," the statement stated. 

KENHA further stated that the flooding had affected the roads around Nyayo Stadium and Bunyala roundabout, adding that a team had been deployed to fix the situation.
