NGONG TOWN: Vehicles Blocking Pedestrians

Elveza Media last week received record calls from Ngong residents who complained over vehicles blocking safe walking grounds for pedestrians who are now being forced to risk their lives by walking on the road.

A lady who identified herself as Jecintah said vehicles have now taken over from street traders.  She pointed out the stretch from Baclays bank towards Ngong Post Bank and the new Shade butchery parking area.
