A traffic jam is building up on the Nakonde –Isoka road as more vehicles get stuck as most parts have turned into mud…..Audrey Mwape reports
The Nakonde – Isoka road is in bad state leaving the transporters and traders from both Zambia and Tanzania stranded.
The road which links Zambia to Tanzania is one of the major trading routes in the country for business, especially transporters who deal in international trade.
The road which is covered in mud after a downpour has made the road impassable causing the transporters to be stranded in unsecured places without food and toilets.
The transporters from the neighboring Tanzania raised concerns over being charged for road tolls yet the road keeps getting bad without any attention being given to the road.
They have asked government to work on the road for the safety of travellers.
