Area Councillor, Stephen Sajolomba, complained that only small and utility vehicles can pass through the road while heavy duty trucks are unable to pass.
He complained that there is a high number of deaths, especially among the pregnant mothers traveling on the road.
The councillor explained that patients referred to Zambezi district hospital are forced to be transported by ox-carts because some motorists have allegedly shunned using the road.
He appealed to government to repair the road so that goods and essential services are transported to the area.
The civic leader said that a good road network is vital to accelerating development.
