Ibanda: LC V chairperson threatens to demonstrate against poor roads
The Ibanda District LC V chairperson, Happy Herbert Mayanja has threatened
to stage a peaceful demonstration should the Government through Uganda
National Roads Authority (UNRA) delay to work on Ibanda-Kagongo-Kitagwenda road
which is in a sorry state.
Speaking to our reporter, Happy Herbert Mayanja said that recently he
wanted to work on the road using District graders but unfortunately
UNRA threatened to arrest him and his team.
He added that currently the road in question is a threat to pregnant
mothers from different areas that use it to access antenatal services
from Ibanda Hospital.
Mayanja further urged the area members of parliament to work hand in hand with
the Minister for works and transport, Gen Katumba Wamala to make sure that the road is
worked on or else he will continue with the peaceful demonstration.
