Transport in Nairobi’s Kasarani-Mwiki road was on Monday morning paralysed as matatu operators went on strike to protest poor state of roads.

The operators barricaded a section of the road forcing commuters to trek to Thika road before connecting to their different places of work as heavy rains pounded.

School going children were also affected. As at 9.30 am some had not reported to their learning centres.
