The terrible condition of the main road leading to Kailahun and other feeder roads within the district was on Thursday 23rd October 2008 brought to the attention of Parliament by Honourable Paramount Chief of Luawa Chiefdom, Mohamed Sama Kailondo Banya.


P.C Banya told the House of Parliament that the main road to Kailahun has never received attention thus it present deplorable state since colonial period.

“Even the hike in the price of a bag of rice which has gone beyond the global cost can be linked to the terrible conditions of the roads,” he said, while highlighting that people rarely take their wares to Kenema as a result of the expensive transport fare.


He disclosed further that people prefer smuggling their goods to neighboring countries due to proximity.


“Let me take this opportunity to appeal to this government to take steps and address the road network problem of Kailahun,” he said, while adding that the district has got many cash and subsidiary crops to contribute towards national revenue generation.


For her part, Honourable Alice Foya says the Kailahun road is indeed a dead trap for people plying that route, while adding that overloaded trucks are the major cause for the defunct condition of the road.


She therefore used the forum as an opportunity to appeal to the government to speedily intervene and remedy the situation.
