Shame of roads in African capitals

Which side do motorist drive in Africa? The answer is ''on the better section of the road''. That is how a joke goes in most of Africa where motorist should keep left.

Potholes in Africa are brutal: The cause accidents, spread diseases, cause violence, reverse development, cause hunger and generally kill. This is to say, Africa's roads are the most dangerous in the world!

A friend in Maputo mailed me the following pictures of potholes in some African capital, published by the press in recent days.

She said Harare and Kampala lead the way, with others like Kinshasa, N'Djamena, Nairobi, Dar es Salaam and Maputo fighting for positions in top ten league. She joked that in some capitals, the potholes actually attempt to kill.

This is Maputo. The best roads there are the worst ones in South Africa, seriously

(At the top is Kampala, Harare and Maputo)
So, which side of the road in your country do you drive on, or supposed to!
