Roy has hired crews of about 10 each to clear the road, 500m per group, and the 5 kilometers from the main road to the entry of the CEFA land is almost done! They have to make it 6 meters wide and try to crown it down the middle and dig ditches on the sides so when the big rains start, the road won’t turn into a river bed.
You can see that some of the crews are pretty much creating the road, whereas this one group is just cleaning up the first section right off the main road.
Here’s a little old Fulani man, with plastic aqua shoes, doing his part for his group of road clearers!
Here’s Roy, having found one of the corner boundary markers for the property – lots of trudging through the brush with a machete to get there, with the help of a GPS.
