Residents of Ndorwa and Rubanda counties, along the Uganda Rwanda border are up in arms against the authorities for their apathy towards the problem of roads.
Several people have been complaining that the poor state of rods is making it increasingly difficult for the farmers to transport their agricultural produce to the markets.
The road stretch from Katuna Border through Rubaya, Butanda, Bufundi to Muko Sub County has been rendered impassable because of the numerous potholes.
Julius Tweteise says the people of Butanda are suffering because transporters are unwilling to transport produce on the dilapidated roads.
Kellen Habomugisha, a resident in Rubanda says the road stretch needs urgent attention before the peak rainy season.
Leaders from the five affected sub counties have written a protest letter to the district council, reminding them of their obligation to rehabilitate the road to pave way for development.
Sam Ndaaba, the district technical secretary, says the road has been taken over by the ministry of works.
According to Ndaaba, the works minijstry intends to link the roads to the Katuna-Kigali and Kabale-Kisoro highways.
Ndaaba says the state minister of works, John Byabagambi, promised to have the road upgraded in January but there is no response as it has not been started.
He says he will write to the resident engineer of ministry of works to remind him of the outstanding offer.
The Kabale district speaker, Jack Katarishagwa, says the need for roads must not be under rated.
