Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen on Thursday conducted an inspection tour at the Mlolongo Expressway that was damaged on Wednesday during anti-government protests.
Protesters in Mlolongo pulled the road's barrier down and destroyed the flower containers lining the Expressway walls.
Murkomen said the damage done on the road could cost over Sh700 million.
The value was arrived at after going through all that was vandalised.
"From the Ministry of Roads and Transport, we are disappointed with the organizers of yesterday's mass action as was announced and we have assessed the damage.
"The people who have been organizing this mass action have told the nation they are doing so because they want to fight the cost of living but the damage only done on the Expressway for that short period could be anything up to $5 million (Sh706 million)," Murkomen said.
The CS said his ministry is disappointed by organizers of the protests who claim to be fighting the high cost of living yet they are vandalising the infrastructure.
He vowed to make sure people who perpetrated the act will be brought to justice.
"Those who are even planning to repeat these acts of causing damage again will meet the full force of the law. They will not try to do it again because we will make it very painful for them, not just now but for the rest of their lives," Murkomen said.
He said they will do everything to prevent such cases from happening in the future.
