Bundibugyo district is stuck with 42 motorcycles that were supplied by government to ease work of civil servants. Some of the motorcycles have broken down while others are too old to move.
Charles Agaba, the head of Procurement Disposal Unit Bundibugyo District, says some of the motorcycles have been in use for over 10 years and need to be overhauled or disposed of.
He says the motorcycles were being used by various officials like Sub County Chiefs, staff in the office of the district education officer and health department among others.
Agaba notes that some of the officials have since got new motorcycles while majority are still waiting for the district engineer to recommend those that can be repaired so that they can resume with their duties.
He notes that the process of disposing of other motorcycles has been hampered by the failure of the Board of Survey to sit and inspect the motorcycles and make necessary recommendations.

Cue out… council approves them."//
URN visited the site where the motorcycles are kept and found a number of them missing some parts. Some only had frames while others looked intact but very old and rusty.
Bundibugyo LC V Chairman, Ronald Mutegeki, says they are aware about the motorcycles and their condition. He said the council will sit soon and find a way forward.
