RUBANDA, UGANDA: Rubanda District has tabled a supplementary request of 200 million shillings to repair roads that were destroyed by recent landslides and floods.
According to the Rubanda District Engineer, Mr Denise Twesigomwe, an assessment of the damage caused by the floods was made and an estimate of 200 million shillings was evaluated to fix the loss measured.
The Rubanda District LC.5 Chairperson, Mr Ampeire Stephen Kasyaba says the heavy downpour that happened last Friday morning left most roads in the district devastated and five people dead.
Mr Kasyaba says although there is a need to maintain the destroyed roads, the Municipality lacks funds and they have decided to write to the Uganda Road Fund seeking immediate support of about 200 million shillings to open up some of the District roads.
He added that once the money is availed, it will be used to install culverts on some of the roads and open all roads that have been closed.
He however said that the district has already started opening some of the roads including Nyamweru Road in Nyamweru Sub County and Kacherere Road in Kacherere town council.
