Abstract
Walls of this description can be made for about Sh. 1,950 a mile, entirely by unskilled labour, supervised by an ordinary mason to use the plumb-line to keep the moulds upright. This estimate includes the cost of maintenance of a pair of bullocks to plough and cart the soil and also cart water to the site. This shows a tremendous saving on Public Works Department Estimates for brick walls,
