Driving wrong vehicles on the right side of the road.

Welcome to a country where people drive right-handed vehicles on right-hand side of the road, where there are no rules of the road and pestetrians walk along in the middle of road, where extremely only slow driving speed saves lives and minimize road accidents, where there is no need for traffic police and not necessarily a driving license and therefore no age limit to drive a vehicle.

You guessed. It is the new Somalia emerging from the ashes of the Civil War. Guess how long it will take to bring that country back on track, how much rehabilitation works to be done on youth, regulations, institutions and infrastructure?

But, don’t despair. There is light at end of the tunnel. It is just digging it out of the deep hole.
