A short history of the Mendi-Kandep road

THE basic road construction from Kandep to Mendi was completed in 1969. The people along the road saw the first motorbike brought in by Fr. Malachy McBride OFM Cap. 

It was a small 100cc Kawasaki Motorbike. He would stop at Winja, leave his motorbike there and walk to Ipisam (Honda), thus visiting those people much more frequently.
