He also gave some money to the youths and told them not to harass the travelling public.
"This is a national highway and I appeal to all of you not to harass or humiliate the public and contractors who come to repair the bridge,” urged Governor Naru.
“Refrain from this as I am giving you some money and want this road to be opened."
Naru gave K10,000 (K5,000 each) to both Wampit and Timini youths.
He said people from Bulolo and Menyamya districts are their people and they must not be threatened; they should be able to move around freely.
