South Sudan’s roads minister has apologized to the public for the bad condition of roads in the country as a study found that they were the worst in the region.
Roads worsened following recent torrential rains that made them impassable because of flooding and mud.
More than 1,500 Lorries carrying food supplies have been stranded for weeks in Western Equatorial state.
Roads Minister Simon Mijok Mijak said engineers were working on the roads and the lorries would be able to move in a few days.
South Sudan’s roads have been described as “the worst” in the region, in a report released by an east African body, the Northern Corridor Transit and Transport Co-ordination Authority. END
