The Citizen added further most of the paved roads in the city are dotted with potholes and several others are washed away completely.
The situation repeats every year and repair works begins every June raising questions what is happening to the city roads and is the situation result of poor workmanship. It is also questioned why the roads require intensive repair every year.
Well, if poor workmanship is to be blamed, then what could be the root cause. Whether corruption is to be blamed or poor technology knowhow. Also, what need to be done to ensure good roads comes up in the country which are able to withstand the vagaries of nature.
