One of the marvels of governance in Murang’a County is how the government used taxpayers’ money to build a public road but surrendered its management to a criminal gang that extorts money from users, with those who defy them ending up murdered.

The Kaharatí-Kangarí road has Kaharatí, Heho, Gakũria Hũngũ, Kambĩ, Karurĩ, Mũthithi, Ngabũri, Kĩere, Karega, Kĩgumo, Gakĩra, Ikũmbĩ and Kangarĩ as the main towns, as well as Njiiris, Gatiainĩ and Mairí into the Aberdare forest to connect to Nyandarua County.

The road takes one to the home villages of major power peddlers in the current government, key among them, ironically, being Transport CS James Macharia, who branches off in Karega to his Gachocho home.

It is also the road to the late Agikuyu benga beat maestro Joseph Kamaru, whose home compound is next to that of Julius Gitau, the Thika millionaire who, after his income got a beating from the Covid-19 pandemic, jotted a suicide note that he had tossed himself into the Thika River, went ahead and kidnapped himself, went into hiding for 11 weeks to escape auctioneers and came out to claim that he had been at the hands of very evil people who had forced him to serve them as a houseboy.

The road also leads Murang’a Woman Rep Sabina Chege to her Kinyona home. All the 11 people who have served as Kigumo constituency MP so far and former ambassador to Germany, John Baptista Kirore Mwaura, use this route to their villages.
