Mbagathi Way, Renamed To Raila Odinga Way, 16 Years Later.

| | ,

Mbagathi way has got a new name, and Kenyans will have to get used to the change. The road is now called Raila Odinga way.

The signage was reportedly erected on Thursday night.

Just for the record, Raila Odinga commissioned the construction of Mbagathi way back in 2005. 

The road was constructed using concrete slabs and has not had any potholes since it was constructed about 16 years ago.

Kenyans have reacted differently, with most Nairobians which, is Raila Odinga’s stronghold, are happy with the change.

What does it take to rename a road?

Are there any approvals by the parliament of the country assembly?

Nairobi County Deputy Governor tweeted, “In honor of the great contribution to the country’s democracy. Mbagathi way is officially Raila Odinga way.”

Famous activist Boniface Mwangi expressed happiness with the new development, renaming of Mbagathi way to Raila Odinga way but said that is not enough.

Mwangi believes that the Opposition chief deserves more than just a road.

According to Boniface Mwangi, he deserves even greater honor for his fight for democracy. 

He said that the opposition chief even deserves an airport to be named after him.

Boniface Mwangi reminded Kenyans that “Raila Odinga spent 10 years in jail fighting for democracy. The younger Raila was a progressive idealist and a fighter for a better Kenya. For his service to this nation, he deserves a road, even an airport named after him. The older Raila is a traitor to his younger self.”

Nairobi County did the renaming in conjunction with the Nairobi Metropolitan Services.
