The Prime Minister says roads that are going to be constructed or maintained will give access to farmers to bring their cash crops and fresh produce to the market.
However, he stressed that road works may take up to 10 years.
He said, “As we build the roads, we will also run electricity pylons following the path of the roads.
“As we build roads and bring electricity, we want people to maintain law-and-order, and all young people who did not complete their higher school education must enrol with Flexible Open Distance Education (FODE) providers.
“It does not matter how old you are, you can go and enrol if you want to complete you grades nine, 10, 11 and 12."
