Why does this not surprise me. This is Kenya remember. As for moving the people and businesses they will probably do what they usually do and bulldoze it overnight. I do wish for the benefit of health and safety and tourism south coast they would get their act together.

Maybe someone is thinking of the equivalent to the "boda boda" for the crossing!

For the uninitiated, a boda boda is a "bicycle taxi", which takes passengers sitting side saddle on the pannier. There are also motorbike taxis, which take one, two, or even three people on the back.

Surely some enterprising young Kenyan can invent a "water bike"!!
