Presidential candidates, currently on a campaign trail have decried the appalling state of roads and bad weather. The candidates say that in several places across the country it is rainy, wet, and muddy, and the roads are increasingly becoming impassable.

John Katumba, an Independent candidate says that the vehicle that he is using for his campaign cannot traverse many of the roads in the countryside, yet he is expected to visit every corner of the country to woo voters. He says that he was forced to abandon campaigns in several areas because of the bad roads.
