Residents of the Kissi Teng chiefdom in the Kailahun district, and the entire district, are requesting and appealing to the new government to build their roads.
This was echoed by the chiefdom speaker, Edward Kundor Foyor, who also said the people of the entire district had been deprived of the benefit of their agricultural products “even though Kailahun district is agriculturally viable”.
He said the people of the district could not benefit from their labour which, he noted, was due to the bad road condition. Edward Kundor Foyor disclosed that survey of the Kenema to Koindu highway project had since been funded and conducted by an Arab agency but that the road construction was yet to commence. Chief Foyor explained that most residents in Kailahun district took their produce and other items to neighbouring Liberia and Guinea. He appealed to President Ernest Bai Koroma for his due consideration for the commencement of the project.
