Residents of Githurai 44 area, who use Ngumba Road a link road between Kamiti Road and Thika Highway, finally have a reason to celebrate after the Nairobi County government commenced on repair works on Saturday.

The pathetic state of the road was the cause of a near day-long demonstrations by operators of Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) which play the route on Tuesday morning.

The protest which involved matatu operators, tuk tuk and boda boda operators brought business on the busy road to a standstill.

Thankfully, the protests seemed to have triggered a positive reaction from the county government.

On Saturday morning, scenes of county officials laying down a fresh layer of tarmac was a far cry from the chaos of last Tuesday.

The county officials also cleared up all the debris which made the road unusable by the many motorists and pedestrians.

The road is mostly used as a route between Githurai, Kiambu and the environs of Kahawa West.

FRANCIS NDERITU

They say anyone can be a photographer until you get to the "manual" setting, the art and passion that such a career brings forthwith is what makes photography the best career choice one can make. Been doing this since 2009 and it has been the best decision ever.

My work at Nairobi News involves proving online digital content from pictures and videos ranging from different topics and situations one comes across. Events happening around from concerts, art shows, exhibitions and all there is when it comes to entertainment.

Francis Nderitu is a Nairobi-based photographer with an extensive career in media. Currently working as an online photographer for Nation Media Group website Nairobi News. Having an eye for pictures is the art behind being an amazing photographer, I see myself not just being amazing but also amazed at what one can achieve in a matter of seconds when you click your camera.
I like to think as a photographer, you see an image, freeze it in your mind then click away. The feeling of creating art from your images is what gives me pleasure in my line of work.
