Of course not. That would mean them having to spend money.

Even if they had the money and were dedicated to do what is badly needed, do you seriously expect the road to be repaired in one-month? Rarely, even in the West, would a road in such terrible condition and length be completed that quickly.

So shamefully, it's NOT!

and I don't think it will ever be - maybe there is indeed a bigger plan behind it to lure more and more tourists away from the road into the air

Just got back, the word is that the government paid a company to fix the road, but they basically took the money and left! I don't know if there is any truth to it. We flew from Nairobi.
