Problems Brought By Bad Roads

A man came across the road.A matatu and a bus appearred from nowhere in a super sonic speed leaving a cloud of dust.The dust affected my brother who was coming across Sondu Nyamaroka road. and he happened to fall down flat. Because of the bad road,the two drivers could not be able to control such an accident. The bad accident made my brother to pass away.The two vehicles happened to kill the passengers who were present in the two vehicles.The bodies of the deads were not well treated because of poor hospitals.Because of what happened,i would like to ask for the ministry for health why he has not taken any action on that.Secondly i would like to ask for government to give out some money through the ministers so that ministry for road to give us help by constructing a good road for us.
