Deputy Speaker of the Revitalized Transitional National Legislative Assembly (R-TNLA), Oyet Nathaniel said Monday that produce is rotting away in Magwi County of Eastern Equatoria State due to poor road network.
“They consume it locally or even it gets spoilt because of overproduction and less consumption, the food doesn’t reach the market,” Oyet said during press briefing in his office following his visit last week to Magwi County.
“The population that returned home is beginning to resume production of food in the area but the major problem they face is poor roads,” he said.
Oyet said traders are finding it difficult to navigate the poor road network on their way to the markets.
“Food production begins to shoot up because of the growing population of people returning from refugee camps and IDPs and this should be supported by good roads,” he said.
