Additionally, he added that they would not let any contractor leave their site until they had finished the job and given quality work
Murkomen went on to say that his ministry and the National Treasury, on behalf of the government, had allocated some funds that would be used to support the designated contractors' ability to carry out their work without interruption and that they were also making efforts to secure financial assistance to speed up the completion of the roads.
The Cabinet Secretary pledged that his administration is committed to making sure that these significant road projects are completed.
