Residents of Buwagama parish in Bumulisha Sub County, Sironko District have decried the poor state of roads in their area.
The residents aired out their concerns to Asha Mafabi Nabulo an aspirant for the Sironko District Woman Parliamentary seat who had visited the area.
Fred Nakoko the District Councillor representing Bumulisha Sub County accused authorities at Sironko District Local Government Council for ignoring the area which is a food basket.
As a result, Nakoko says most of the perishable food that is destined to markets end up rotting on the way because of the bad roads. He also says the area missed out on the government’s rural electrification program because the transportation of electric poles was a challenge due to the poor road network.
But Asha Mafabi Nabulo (NRM) urged the residents to elect leaders who will lobby for improved services. Nabulo promised to donate culverts and murrum trips for maintenance works on the road.
Others in the race for the Sironko Woman Parliamentary seat include; incumbent Florence Nambozo Mayoga (NRM), Hildah Nadunga (NRM), Robinah Wamanga (FDC) and Femiar Wadada (Independent).
