Residents in hard to reach areas in Maliba Sub County are communally working tooth and nail to address the issues of roads connectivity digging 25 kilometres of Kihindi, Isule and Buyale road.
Mary Mbambu 38, an occupant of Kihindi village says they are demonstrating to the government the difficulties they pass through like trekking long distances in a quest for services.
She, however, calls upon the government to extend electricity and employ heavy machines and reinforce the labour-intensive work.
Timothy Masereka the LC 1 chairperson Kihindi village, Isule parish revealed the reason as to why they opted for opening the road, which is to benefit from government programmes as well as ensure easy access to the market for their produces.
Nevertheless, Timothy says despite the good work rendered to the community, there have been issues of compensation that they cannot meet, lack of culverts and welfare.
Therefore, he appealed for government support to enlarge the road and put bridges over the streams in the area.
Rabson Magoma Bwambale, the former LC.3 chairperson who appreciated the efforts of residents also agreed with the LC.1 authority saying it has been a challenge accessing good services.
Magoma who requests the local government to capture the road under community access road fund used the same chance cautioning the community members against destroying the road.
