Commuters using the Kasarani-Mwiki road were stranded for the better part of Monday morning after the matatu operators protested the poor state of the road.

Passengers were forced to walk to Roysambu to catch matatus to work.

The demonstrations began at around 6am as the protesters barricaded sections of the dilapidated road using building blocks.

The overnight rain that pounded Nairobi made the roads worse.

Last month hundreds of residents of Kasarani similarly protested over the state of the same road.
