Residents say that the road’s drainage system can no longer accommodate the water that flows from Makanga hill which has put their life at risk of contracting diseases.

“When it rains nowadays in the municipality, the stretch becomes impassable because of water logged potholes,” one resident told our reporter.

Alex Ahimbisibwe, a resident of Bugongi in the town says that the stretch is so dilapidated that it has also caused accidents as drivers and cyclists try to dodge potholes.

Ahimbisibwe adds that it is regrettable to have leaders who announce developments that are not to be implemented in the time frame given.

The Uganda National Roads Authority station Engineer for Kabale, Robert Byekwaso, says that UNRA and COWI have already completed the design of the road.
