Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya, has been named the Africa Road Builders Super Prize Great Builder – Trophée Babacar NDIAYE 2018, for his personal leadership and for the transformation of the road network.

The decisions were submitted to three main criteria such as the social impact of the projects, their environmental aspect and the quality of the financial arrangement.

At the end of the deliberations, the Selection Committee proceeded to the choice of the winner of the Super Prize Great Builder – Trophée Babacar NDIAYE of The Africa Road Builders 2018.

The Committee also noted the development of the railways and the simplification of air transport across the continent.

The Selection Committee encourages all African states to improve the quality of roads and transport and carry out concrete projects that facilitate the mobility of all the peoples of the continent. It also lauded the efforts of Dr Akinwumi Adesina, president of the African Development Bank (AfDB), for putting the issue of roads and transport high on its agenda through its governance program called “The High 5 to Transform Africa.”
