African countries with the best road networks

Africa is one of the fastest-growing continents in the world, this is according to the African Development Bank’s Annual Development Effectiveness Review 2013. The continent has been a laughing stock due to poor infrastructural development, corruption, and economic growth.

Slowly,  all these will be a thing of the past because although some African government officials are still corrupt. However, there are others that are bent on developing their countries by investing heavily in infrastructural projects.

Some infrastructural development includes roads. We all know how important roads are to our access to quality and important services such as health care, transportation,  food, etc.  According to the Global Competitiveness Report index, some countries have made a great effort to improve their economies in terms of infrastructure. The following African countries are said to have the best road network.

1 . Namibia
