Another resident added that their roads are now a death trap and pleaded that a small bridge should be constructed for them.

Students and children in the community recounted their daily ordeal and also called on the authorities to come to their aid.


An officer also advised Moto riders and residents to be in their safety gears like helmet and boots to protect themselves and work on their hearts and minds each time they are on the roads since the police cannot be on the road all the time to ensure the safety of the road users. He added that residents should take their own precautions to prevent avoidable deaths .
