The pothole menace that has affected Kenyan motorists for years is set to end, following the introduction of the globally acclaimed and hi-tech road and pot-hole maintenance technology.

The introduction of the new Velocity Road Repair Machine by Avery East Africa, a subsidiary of the TransCentury Company, is the first of its kind in Kenya and the region, and the second in Africa, following its successful launch in South Africa.

The technology can permanently repair a pothole in about two minutes, while carrying out up to 150 long-lasting pothole repairs per day, greatly improving the speed and efficiency of road rehabilitation while reducing the cost.

In December, Embu Governor Martin Wambora said that the national government should stop interfering with county affairs and especially development projects such as roads

Speaking during the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Probase Contracting Limited Kenya, Wambora said; “The national government should keep off from county roads since we are under the mandate of the county governments as passed by the court last week.”

The Probase Kenya Limited is a Malaysian company which has been contracted to tarmac the 100 km Embu- Kibugu road at a cost of Ksh 3.5 billion.

  1. No matter how good a technology is, it is always good practice to involve the intended beneficiaries (citizens through their elected representatives).
