District leaders in Kiboga may have an unwanted Christmas present tomorrow if they do not find a quick-fix solution to the problems on their roads.
The LC3 chairperson of Gayaza Sub-County, Emmanuel Orom, says that if the roads are not repaired soon residents will be mobilized to plant banana tree suckers in potholes on the roads.
Orom says the 50 kilometers of road connecting the sub-county headquarters to Kiboga town is so deteriorated that it has been sealed off to vehicles. He says this had disrupted life for residents of Gayaza Sub-County who rely on the road to sell their agriculture produce and access health services.
The decision to plant banana suckers in the middle of the road was agreed upon by the sub-county council.
John Chrizestom Muwonge, the Speaker of Gayaza Sub-County council, says the action will be a peaceful way for people to express displeasure in the inaction of the district authorities. He says mobilization for the demonstration is going on to ensure that as many people as possible participate in it.
The road in question traverses Wattuba, Ntwetwe and Gayaza sub-counties, connecting to Nkoko in Kibaale district.
