The district vice chairperson who also doubles as the secretary for works, water and roads, Peter Ndyahoza urged the district engineers to use the equipment responsibly.

“Let the operators of these road equipment use them carefully with minimal breakdown because our priority is to improve road infrastructure,” Ndyahoza said.
