Ibrahim Lansana Kagbanda, Proprietor of Lans Kay Enterprises, opposite the Kailahun Court Barry states that he loses so much on his business, as he is forced to reduce prices on his items which are covered with dust as the roads construction in the town have been abandoned. He explains that the main road linking to Pendembu is nothing to write home about, adding that he was informed that the town roads construction was halted because of lack of funding.
Jonathan Robies, foreman at ISU Korean company, states that their aim is to complete the entire Segbwema and the other towns along the highway, before the rains, as their constrains is due to too many bridges that need proper construction, maintaining that the Sierra Leonean workers are doing extremely well in the road construction.
