Malindi continues its process of restyiling while waiting for the return of tourism: the local one which is already beginning to see fair numbers and which will have its climax in August, and especially the European one whose recovery is expected gradually in the coming months, with the return of charter flights at the end of October and the seasonal "repeaters" from November, waiting for the Christmas holidays that will certainly not be like the previous ones but hopefully with a minimum of lovers of Kenya.
After the reconstruction of the waterfront and Casuarina roads and the resumption of work on the seafront, the repair of the potholes in the center and on the Lamu Road and the beginning of the paving of the so-called bypass to divert trucks before entering the city, in recent days the asphalt works have begun on the stretch of Mtangani Road that goes from the corner with the former Barclays Bank to the prisons. The first lot should provide about one and a half km of "tarmacking", connecting with the two roads already paved with blocks, Majengo (Sophia Street) and the one coming from Tsavo Road and connecting to the other road to Mtangani. The bulldozers are already working and the road has been closed. The works are expected to be completed by the end of the year. Meanwhile, outside Malindi, work is also resumed on the Jacaranda Road that will connect Watamu to Chembe Kibambache, or Jacaranda Bay. The Governor of Kilifi Amason Kingi has announced the resumption and promised the flattening and laying of "murram" of the entire Malindi-Watamu sea link. For the asphalt will be seen, but this is already a good start.
