There is excitement among residents of Nyamuyanja Sub County in Isingiro district following the long awaited commissioning of Kaberebere –Nyamuyanja-Ryamiyonga Road construction works.

 

The 23.1km road stretch will cost Shillings 1.68 billion provided under the Development Response to Displacement Impacts Project , which covers refugee hosting districts. 

In 2018, government secured a loan of US$ 50 Million about (Shillings 185 Billion) from World Bank to support projects designed to assist refugee hosting communities in Uganda.   

The construction that is being undertaken by Pehan construction limited will see the road upgraded to first class murrum.  

The road that has been in a sorry state connects Isingiro North and South and shortest route from Isingiro to Mbarara district.  

Commissioning the Road Works on Monday morning, on behalf of government, the State Minister for Animal Husbandry, Bright Rwamirama asked the contractor to stick to the project specification and quality work.
