Mbale city has received over 11 billion shillings under Uganda Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development USMID program to construct three roads which are currently in bad conditions.
According to James Kutosi, the Public Relations Officer, Mbale City, the roads to be constructed are Naboa, Manafwa and Cathedral Avenue.
Kutosi revealed that they have received lots of letters from people of Mbale city threatening to hold demonstrations over bad state of roads.
“We were however unable to repair those roads yet we have received money which is going to be used in constructing them.” Kutosi said.
The PRO urged City dwellers to be calm saying they are only waiting for the procurement process to conclude and works will commence as soon as this week.
He adds that part of that money will be used on installing solar security lights, improve on drainage among other works on three roads.
