THE poor state of Lumumba Road requires urgent attention.
It has been in a deplorable state for a long time.
This road is of economic significance to Zambia as it drives the country’s economy.
This is because trucks which ferry fuel from either the northern region or southern region use this road.
The poor state of the road poses some danger to people’s lives.
I would like to appeal to Road Development Agency (RDA) to quickly come on board and start repairing this road before lives are lost.
The lifespan of vehicles passing through this road is reduced due to tear and wear of some components.
Motorists using this road have bemoaned the poor state of the road for a long time but nothing has been done to have it repaired.
