Can’t these guys be forced to do their signage in English or something readable? Everywhere they put a sign post it is forever in Chinese!

what is this man’s fascination with huge machines? even mashambani you will see entire villages lining up to watch a 'dozer or shovel work…

I gather its in Emali

But they are chinese…Ni kama kusema biashara za wakikuyu ziandikwe na kikuyu na wako lodwar ama bondo!!

Are you supporting or against or simply confused

During my free time I would board those Githurai buses, go all the way to Githurai and back to town just to witness the progress like I had a stake in it.


When I jave free time I can watch a powersaw cutting mega wood
