@jude_lumumbaThis is the first time I have seen a house built , tenants got in but they are now being told to vacate since the landlord has to commission it. What about lost revenue and money from customers tied in unnecessary red tape? We need to be treated better please .
@jaco78So what happens to those who acquired ETC gadgets and MTC cards.
@The_TittsmasterNot Kenyans about to overeact when they clearly stated at the start that's it's being opened for trial 😆
@michukipnThis is crazy? How do you close an entire road to wait for official opening? 🤔 Are you serious?
@dennisMMuriithiThey should have done this communication like 3 days earlier. Hii mambo ya surprise si poa. I installed the E.T.C thingy jana😔😔. That's 3k suspended in their system.
@kamaujstAnd the money in my wallet that is yet to be utilized? Reassure me on my balance in the etc account! But why could this not wait for Monday?? But at least it will let people know huko chini is chaos and probably get you more vehicles on your road!
