Mention of river Enziu in Nguni ward, Mwingi East sub county stirs mixed reactions.
Enziu is known for mercilessly sweeping persons who try to cross it while bloated to their painful deaths.
Last year, the killer river hit headlines after it swallowed several lives during April rains.
If only there was a bridge at the river, maybe people would cross to the other side peacefully as opposed to now when rains pound, many spend nights at their neighbors in fear of their lives being swept by the river.
Unfortunately, the only hope for life at the stream is a stalled bridge that was abandoned over three years ago barely half –way constructed.
In the ongoing tarmacking of Nguni-Nuu road, no single bridge was included in the contract.
According to Mwingi central MP, Gideon Mulyungi, he has done a geotechnical survey with the ministry of infrastructure and sourcing for funds to construct an ultramodern bridge.
“I have initiated plans to do a new bridge because the integrity of those 2 stalled pillars is uncertain, “said the legislator.
