Kamwenge District Residents Protest Over Shoddy Work on Rukunyu-Kamokya Road

The 17-kilometre road connects two parishes of Kyakanyemera and Nyakahama in Kahunge Sub County. The district repaired it about two weeks ago at a tune of 21 million shillings by the Uganda Road Fund – URF.     

However, residents say that the road was not levelled well, it has already developed potholes and becomes so slippery especially during the rainy season.  

Julius Tugume, a resident of Kyerima village in Kyakanyemera parish, says that the road is so important to them as farmers use it for transporting their agricultural produce to markets, but wonders why parts of the road were left un-repaired.

William Kyomukama, also a resident, says the road is so paramount because it leads to Rukunyu Health Centre and he blames the area leadership for failure to monitor the road during its construction.
