A man in Western Highlands has used more than K70,000 from his personal savings to help his people by maintaining and upgrading a 15km road.
Gabriel Andandi from Tambul in the Tambul-Nebilyer electorate has funded the road from Tomba to Tambul which was closed for more than 10 years causing more than 20,000 people from 22 council wards to suffer.
Apart from the K70,000 spent on the road works, he bought six diesel drums at a cost of K5000 and gave another K1000 to people that helped.
He said that the road was closed for more than 10 years due to lack of maintenance.
He said that he was from the area and was saddened by his people’s plight.
“I have to dig deeper into my pocket to help my people because they have been without a road,” Andandi said.
“It was not good to see them walking with loads for several kilometres in order to reach their homes.”
