Probase Kenya to tarmac roads in Embu at a cost of US$ 38.5 Million
The County government of Embu has signed contract with Probase Kenya, a Malaysian-based construction firm, to construct and tarmac roads across the county at a cost of US$ 38.8 Million.
Embu County governor Martin Wambora said that the county signed the contract after the court ruled that county governments should manage their roads.
“This deal is the best the county has entered into so far in terms of roads construction since it uses modern technology and is cheap,” he added.
This comes barely after the Kenyan Council of Governors sued the national government, demanding full control of county roads and won the case.
According to the Probase Kenya managing director Winson Choong the project will involve the construction of 12km roads and will take six months.
