He said the engineer ascertained the fact that the roundabout edifice was substandard and has the tendency to collapse between now and 2024.

‘’This is because it is done with used foam work and too much sandy materials instead of normal cement concrete,’’ the statement said.

‘’Also, the structure is too tall to be placed in front of the government house as it defaces its main gate which blocks the view for security surveillance.’

‘’Additionally, it poses traffic challenges around the area because of its size, blocking the view of drivers accessing all routes linked through the roundabout.’’

According to the statement, “the government wishes to make it clear that it became very necessary to take down the structure for the purposes of immediate reconstruction and downsizing to ensure visibility of the Government House entrance and safety of motorists.
