The councilors revealed that they have given Uganda National Roads Authority officials in Kabale district an ultimatum of two weeks to start working on the roads which are in a very poor state or they protest.
The Kihihi sub county district Councilor, James Kaberuka told Chimpreports today, Wednesday, that many roads in the district under UNRA are impassable which “has made transport of goods and services in the district to market centers very difficult”.
The Kanungu district chairman for social services who is also the district Councilor for Mpungu sub county, Mr. Frank Byaruhanga, noted that farm produce like tea, matooke and Irish potatoes from his area have been wasted after trucks and Lorries that transport the produce fail get where to pass.
“As the chairman of the social services committee, my office has run short of what to use to compel UNRA to work on the roads other than storming its regional offices to express this dissatisfaction,” Byaruhanga said.
Chimpreports contacted, Dan Arinange, the communications director of Uganda National Roads Authority who noted that the roads in Kanungu have not been worked on due to lack of enough human resource.
Arinange noted that UNRA is working hard to ensure that the said roads are worked on in the shortest possible period.
The Kanungu roads under UNRA include Kihihi-Nyamirama -Rukungiri road, Kihihi-Kanyantorogo road, Bwindi-Mpungu road, and Kanungu-Hamurwa road.
