“The completion of this road has eased transport in this area. Now travelling to Maasai Mara from Loitoktok, one does not have to pass through Nairobi. You can just go through Imaroro to Isinya and from Isinya, Ngong to Suswa,” President Kenyatta said.

On his part, the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga said that he was pleased to accompany the President to witness the opening of the road.
