Vehicles cross through a flooded section of Thika General Kago road past Bidco factory few meters to Nairobi- Garissa higway terminus. The road is completely submerged in water making it difficult for motorist to pass through. Early in the morning, long queues have been witnessed as vehicles slowly try to cross the flooded section.
Pedestrians and commuters from Makongeni and Kiganjo heading to Thika town were forced to seek an alternative route or to test the waters by wading on the waters.
Heavy rains experienced in Kiambu particularly in Thika town and its suburbs with poor drainage have led to overflow of hence flooding roads. A Petrol station opposite the road was forced to close after water invaded it.
