  1. Routine checks and maintainance by the Ministry of works and supply should work up and do thier work. Farming is the life line of the people and bridges acts as the link to the market for rural or peasant farmers.
    We dont need donors even to fix such things beacuse the govt department resposible should have a list of every raod and bridge. Where did the money they recovered from the plunders go? Use to for national development. How do you want us to tell you what to do with money? Collecting and seazing property from the plunders should be felt by all the people not give money to another plunderer. Then there is no point to arresting the plunders.OH BE WISE WHAT MORE CAN I SAY!!
