a random check of township roads rehabilitation works being under
taken by the local authority.

enjoy the comfort of their offices but also conduct field tours to
inspect developmental projects to understand challenges people in
the communities were facing.

stalled and that therefore there was need to monitor all projects so as
not to allow contractors cut themselves away from government before
completing the works.

agency and the local authority.
