LCI Chairpersons in Zesui Sub County on Wednesday mobilized residents and vendors at Kipande market to peacefully demonstrate over the poor state of the Buweri-Zesui road.
Stephen Madanda the LCI Chairperson for Bumuniasi village in Bulujewa parish says they had no option but to mobilize residents to plant banana suckers on the impassable road. Madanda says they have often reminded the District Authorities about the state of the road in vain.
Michael Wasukila the LCI chairperson Lugonge village says transportation of agricultural products like onions, cabbage and passion fruits to markets in Mbale and Sironko town is now a challenge.
Wilson Mandela a resident of Zesui Sub County says will continue demonstrating peacefully until the Sironko Distroct Authorities start works on the road.
David Gizamba the Chairperson Kipande market says the market dues collected are also inadequate since the number of farmers transporting their food to the facility has gone down.
But Hebert Mulekwa the LCV chairperson for Sironko calls for calm saying the rains currently pounding the area have delayed kick start of works on the road.
