Kazo residents accuse leaders and UNRA over poor roads.
Residents of Kaicumu village, Engari Sub County Kazo district western Uganda have accused their leaders and the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) over the poor roads especially the one connecting Engari and Kaicumu Trading Centres.
This follows the frequent accidents reported by bodaboda riders and other road users, which they say has led them to a lot of losses.
Residents have said Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) first brought culverts, promising to handle the situation, but have never returned to follow them up, which has prompted residents to do the work manually.
Now the residents have opted to bury down the UNRA culverts and block the road until UNRA takes another action.
Engari Sub County district Councillor Dan Tumwine revealed that he is likely to join the residents to demonstrate since UNRA has not done the needful.
According to UNRA Deputy Engineer Ibanda branch Doreen Kukunda, UNRA intends to respond to their concern this month (March 3, 2020) in collaboration with Greater Kiruhura district to procure a wheel loader to rehabilitate the road, and if it fails, they use that of Ibanda.
