In an attempt to transform the country’s infrastructure, the Second Republic has adopted a hands-on approach.
Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development Honourable Felix Mhona said, ‘‘What we are trying to demonstrate is that we are a listening government. Gone are the days when we used to work from our offices, as the Second Republic we are here to serve the nation.’’
Masiyephambili Drive is one of the major roads in the city which has been rehabilitated ever since the government took over urban roads under the Emergency Roads Rehabilitation Programme.
