The privilege to serve our country in the road subsector is one we have fully embraced as staff of the Kenya Rural Roads Authority. In so doing we are guided by our mandate namely to DevelopConstruct, and Maintain the rural road network in the country.

The Management and staff of the Authority have continued to demonstrate this commitment through our collective dedication to ensuring the implementation and realization of the Authority's mandate.

Our belief system is anchored in our Core Values (Transparency, Professionalism, Integrity, Collaboration and Sustainability), wherein the Authority ascribes to high standards of professionalism in carrying out our duties and this has translated in sustaining high levels of achievement of our evaluated targets that are often surpassed.

We have captured our ambitions in the current Strategic Plan (2024-2027) which has been developed in keeping with all Policy and Legislative targets for the Authority as envisaged by the National Government via sessional economic guidelines and policy directives. Importantly, the strategic plan has incorporated the views and aspirations of all essential stakeholders regarding rural roads. Among the notable stakeholders are the citizenry of the Republic of Kenya, other Agencies and Arms of Government, Development Partners, road contractors, and service providers.

Our operations and systems are geared towards the attainment of National aspirations as espoused in the economic blueprint of the Medium-Term Plan (IV) namely the Bottom-up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA) which will be accomplished through the five (5) core pillars Agricultural Transformation and Inclusive Growth; transforming the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) Economy; Housing and Settlement; Healthcare and Digital Superhighway and Creative Economy.

Towards the achievement of our mandate, the Authority conducts its operations in accordance with applicable laws, rules, and regulations. In addition, the operations of the Authority are guided by ethical practices that embrace strong Corporate Governance principles for effective and efficient service delivery.

The Authority monitors stakeholders` opinion regularly through stakeholder engagements and incorporates valid suggestions in our activities to ensure that our planning, implementation and monitoring of road programs is alive to emergent issues affecting the roads sub-sector. 

I would like to thank the Board of Directors, Management and Staff of Kenya Rural Roads Authority for their support and dedication, as we connect devolved Kenya.

The Kenya Rural Roads Authority takes pride in fulfilling the mandate bestowed upon it by the Government of Kenya, which is to develop, construct and maintain the rural road network in the country as per the Kenya Roads Act, 2007. This mandate has since been revised via the Kenya Gazette Legislative Supplement No. 4 (Special Edition) of 22nd January 2016 in compliance with the Constitution of Kenya 2010.

Since the gazettement of the inaugural Board of Directors in April 2008, subsequent Boards have overseen significant progress in the development of the rural road network with approximately 6500 Km of roads upgraded to Bitumen Standards, and several kilometres maintained through the RMLF annually.

Within the next several years and beyond, Kenya Vision 2030 aims to transform Kenya into a newly industrialized nation where every citizen enjoys a high standard of living. During the strategy period, the economy is predicted to grow at an average annual rate of 10% over 25 years. As this economic blueprint illustrates, building an effective road network is essential to enabling the major economic sectors and realizing this expansion. The ongoing development of rural road infrastructure is directly supported by government policies, most notably the Bottom-up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA).

Presently, the National Government is committed to complete all ongoing road projects in all the 47 counties. Borrowing from the Ministry's tagline seamless connectively the Authority endevours to establish a network felt at both the micro and macro levels. The creation of employmemt opportunities providing access to amenities and enhance communication within project areas.

The Board of Directors continues to actively oversee activities aimed at increasing and sustaining the Authority’s achievements to meet the ever-changing road users' needs. One such approach is strengthening strategic relationships with our key stakeholders. Upholding good corporate governance practices continues to be integral to the Board’s long-term plan and is considered essential in delivering the Authority’s strategy.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and Staff of the Authority, I express my sincere gratitude to the Government of Kenya; Ministry of Roads and Transport; related Road Agencies; Kenyan taxpayers; Development Partners and all stakeholders for their continued support. This has engendered a solid institution that is alive to its stakeholders’ expectations. It is our undertaking as a Board that we shall endeavor to surpass stakeholder expectations, while Connecting Devolved Kenya.
