Transport Paralyzed at Salgaa as protesters block road

Transport was paralyzed on the Kajiado-Namanga highway on Friday after sand harvesters blocked the busy road.

The protestors barricaded the road at Bulls Eye area blocking vehicles from neighboring Tanzania and those heading towards Namanga.

According to demonstrators from Purko, they have been barred from accessing Ilbisil market following their differences with sand harvesters in the area.

The standoff caused a gridlock, even as efforts by Kajiado Central DCC Charles Wambugu to calm the crowd proved futile.
