Kigali, Rwanda Has No Potholes On Its Tarred Roads After Surviving A War by autojosh: 4:21pm On Sep 03, 2018
This African country -  not too long ago - was ravaged by a major civil war.

The war brought the country, most especially its capital city, Kigali, to ruins.

However, the country has revolved to pick itself from the ashes of destruction.

Today, Rwanda is fast becoming a model for many African countries.

Rwanda, under a visionary leadership, has impressively developed its social infrastructure to the extent that it has become a key destination for foreign direct investments.

On the last Saturday in each month, traffic stops and the city comes together to clean the streets of Kigali. Even the President takes part in the exercise.

Non-biodegradable plastic bags have been banned. The government fines persons or business with plastic bags.

Autojosh.com recently paid a visit to Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. While there,  something caught our attention. The network of impressive tarred roads, were all devoid of potholes!

The pothole-free tarred roads in Kigali also features streetlights that are  functional. Well-paved sidewalks further accentuate the pleasant outlook of the roads.

The road networkin Kigali is under the management of the Rwanda Transport Development Agency. The agency is supervised by the Rwanda Ministry of Infrastructure.

Rwanda - a landlocked nation - is highly dependent on road transport. The country has no rail services.

The pump price of PMS (Petrol) is 1,109 Rwanda Franc. That is equivalent of   N470/liter.

Diesel, there, sells for 1005 Rwanda Francs. That is the equivalent of N426/liter.

Rwanda Franc exchanges for 850/870 per Dollar.

Rwanda has a population of about 12,5 million inhabitants.

Paul Kagame is the President of Rwanda.

All black African countries are shitholes Rwanda inclusive. Yes, they are better than Nigeria but they are still shithole. Unfortunately our standards in this part of the world is too low.

But if they were pictures of roads in Buenos Aires or Cambodia, I'm sure you would not have this opinion.

Only 12.5 million people? That's even less than Lagos population. No wonder Nigeria is viewed as the Giant of Africa. Autojosh show us a country in Africa of about 200 million with no pot holes, that'll be a fair comparism. Nevertheless it will be nice to tour Kigali

Please. Let me get you right. So, you mean the more the population, the more the tendency to have potholes on the roads?

This is the dumbest comment I have seen in a long while. Jeez, I feel queasy already.
You're an embarrassment to wisdom.

Chai...!
Even Rwanda!
We need change of mindset down here. Government property is our property. Don't do things that will damage the environment and make it look filthy. Here people throw things on the road and into the gutters anyhow. These wastes end up blocking the few drainages that we have, and the water remains on the road thereby leading to potholes

grin grin grin functional street light! OP, I like that!

It is the opposite in Nigeria! In fact BMCs/aka zombies should mention anything functioning as it should in this country shocked

Rwanda is under a visionary leader!!!

Here in Nigeria we celebrate mediocrity that is why we will keep having the leaders we get!

How I wish that reported earthquake can do justice once and for all to ALL these wicked leaders of ours!
