The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has issued a warning to motorists about the closure of the Bondo-Usenge-Osieko route.

The Dhogoye Bridge was demolished, according to the authorities, after heavy rains in the Nyanza area caused it to collapse.

A permanent bridge has been planned and a procurement process is currently underway to address the recurring problem.

“Since there is no alternative access to Osieko, we wish to advise motorists along that section not to attempt crossing the over-topped section, and to only cross when water levels are low,” KeNHA said on Tuesday.
