Manager of Coffee Industry Corporation’s Productive Partnerships in Agriculture Project (CIC-PPAP), Potaisa Hombunaka, urges MPs to focus on building and maintaining rural roads to improve access of rural communities to markets and services.
“Our mothers feel the pain of carrying heavy loads to climb mountains and cross rivers to sell their coffee or garden produce,” Hombunaka said.
“Just build the roads and forget about us. Roads will take care of other services.”
The last two lines received overwhelming cheers or support from the crowd.
