The Government is investing over kshs.300billion each year in the provision of road infrastructure intended to drive Vision 2030 and Agenda 4 all intended to propel the country into a medium-income level in the next decade. Improvement of non-motorized transport, installation of street and traffic lights, guard rails, traffic signs and other amenities are vital components of modern road infrastructure. While all this is being done, it is sad to note that the culture of vandalism is threatening the enjoyment of these facilities. Vandalism of road infrastructure is indeed an economic sabotage and should not be allowed to wipe out the gains already made.

We have observed with utter shock wanton vandalism of street-lights, guard-rails, road signs among others on most of our urban road network.   In the last 3 months over 30 street poles worth Kshs. 2.5 million have been mowed down and scathed away by vandals in Nairobi City County in an organized crime syndicate. We wish to condemn this unscrupulous and barbaric behavior which not only endangers the lives of road users but also renders the maintenance of roads expensive. Some of the roads most affected include; Thika Super-Highway, Outer Ring-Road, Ngong Road and Lang’ata Road only to mention a few.

We appeal to members of the public to name, shame and expose those vandalising public utilities and arrest this type of selfishness. These Vandals that carry out these activities mostly at night but they are members of our society and live amongst us. The Authority is giving out a reward of one hundred Thousand shillings (KSh.100,000.00) to anyone who can provide reliable information leading to the arrest of these culprits and their partners in the illegal trade.
