President Yoweri Museveni has been urged to fulfill his pledge of tarmacking the old Kabale road in Kabale district.

The 20.2-kilometer road connects Kyanamira, Maziba, and Kaharo Sub Counties in Ndorwa East County to the main Kabale-Mbarara Highway. During his visit to Ndorwa East County in June 2015, Museveni promised to tarmac the road, highlighting it as an alternative route connecting Kabale-Mbarara Highway.

Speaking on Friday during the belated International Women’s Day celebrations in Kabale district, held at Kyanamira sub-county playground in Ndorwa East County, Catherine Atwakiire Ndamira, the district woman Member of Parliament, told Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja that the failure to fulfill the president’s pledge has caused significant discontent among the local population.

Atwakiire also mentioned the dilapidated Maziba bridge along the same road, which is crucial for connecting the area to the Rwandan border. She emphasized that tarmacking the road would significantly improve transportation in the region.

In response, Nabbanja stated that the government is still in the process of tarmacking tourism roads in Kigezi and establishing two ferries on Lake Bunyonyi. She encouraged women to participate in government programs like the Parish Development Model (PDM) to help eradicate poverty.

David Kwesiga Bahati, Minister of State for Trade, Industry and Cooperatives and Ndorwa West County MP, noted that 14 out of 15 sub-counties now have health center IIIs, aimed at improving health standards for expectant mothers.
