    Bole road construction has killed many business along bole road. Many business has suffered badly due the Government interest in having the project finish for the Africa Union meeting in July. The project was post to take two years but they half it. Instead of half the road being opened whilst construction was push forward for the meeting. This has damage locally businesses heavily. Who cares?
