Tarmac Meets Tarmac

Tarmac meets tarmac at Merille

By Ahmed Kura

Travels to Marsabit for monthly check ins with my field team often brings a sense of satisfaction in what I do because Marsabit is Home albeit it demands quiet some effort, driving through the beautiful flowers and barley farms of Timau reminds me of how earth can be beautiful if properly nurtured, I look to my right and the snow of Mt. Kenya takes my breath away.

Just past Archers Ololokwe/Sabache stands tall and elegant reminding me of the serenity that awaits me.

I look to my left and the Mathews Ranges assures me company all the way to Merille River and alas I saw tarmac met tarmac.

Over 50 years of independence and now my people can get off angle lines of trucks transporting cattle. Ambulances can fly low and get the sick to equipped hospitals. The series 3 Landrovers can now be dedicated to rhino charge,like this one.

I said to myself ,Marsabit is no longer Kenya B but Kenya A plus. I quickly got my Note 5 phone but do I say took a photo of the tarmacs meeting, posted on FB and to say it went viral will be understatement.
