Speaking during the launch, Adil said the construction of the road is a significant step towards peace, unity, and progress within the three counties.

He urged the three commissioners to take charge of ensuring security along the road to enable engineers to complete work within the timeframe.

Adil further called on the local population to cooperate with the engineering team by providing essential local materials like Murram and others required for the project.

He assured the engineering team of government’s commitment to their safety throughout the project duration and beyond its completion within six months.

Yei River County Commissioner, Aggrey Cyrus Kanyikwa called upon the community to take full responsibility of the road construction.
