Kaberebere town council in Isingiro district is struggling to maintain roads in the area due to lack of funds. The town council receives an annual allocation of 80 million Shillings for the maintenance of roads, which however is not enough, according to Town Council Chairperson Patrick Kajumba.
Most of the roads in the town council have developed gullies, bridges have been washed away by floods and drainage channels are clogged by solid waste. Some of the roads that have since become impassable include Nyamuyanja, Kishuro and Katanoga.
Two major bridges of Kaberebere-Nyamuyanja and Kishuro- Katanoga that were washed away by the rains about three months ago are also yet to be repaired.
Moses Baguma, a resident of the town council says that the onset of rains has worsened the already bad situation in the area. He says that the authorities in the town council failed to apply murram in the roads and those that had been graded have turned muddy and impassable.
Kajumba acknowledges the poor state of roads in the area, which he however blames on the hilly terrain and heavy rains.
