MAGWAY DIVISION – Gangaw District PDF Battalion 8/9 Kyaukhtu PDF issued an announcement, asking people not to use the Kyaukhtu-Pakokku Road Section connecting the townships of Saw, Kyaukhtu, and Pakokku.
The announcement, issued on August 5, will continue to remain in effect until future announcements allow the usage.
It was also mentioned that people who need to use the road in emergency situations should contact the Kyaukhtu PDF office in advance.
“There is a junta convoy of 48 vehicles (on the road). The announcement was probably issued because they (Kyaukhtu PDF) were concerned for the people. Avoiding the Kyaukhtu, Pauk, Tapyin, and Pakokku Road Sections these days should be safe,” said a resident.
The announcement was said to have been issued due to the junta convoy from Kyaukhtu in Saw Township that shifted battalions in Kanpetlet of Chin State and returned towards Pakokku.
