Kamwenge district local government has received 100 million Shillings from the government to facilitate the rehabilitation Kahunge-Nkarakara-Kiiziba-Rukunyu road, a stretch covering up to 13.6 kilometres.

The poor state of the road has recently triggered protests from residents, especially farmers and bodaboda riders. The resident said that the road is filled with potholes and galleys and becomes so slippery, especially during the rainy season. 

Amos Tumwine, one of the area residents from Kiziba says the state of the road had hindered the movement of both people and goods to markets and that many of them could not access other social amenities from surrounding areas because they could hardly endure the bad state of the road. He, however, welcomes the planned rehabilitation of the road as a relief to the local community.

Kamwenge District Chairperson Aggrey Natuhamya says that the road had given the area leaders 'sleepless nights', especially after the heavy rains, pushing him to seek for an emergency fund to ensure that it's worked on.
