Wednesday, July 31, 2019

President Yoweri Museveni, currently in South Western Uganda on job and Wealth sensitisation campaign, has commissioned the newly built roads within Kabale Municipality of Kabale District in Kigezi Sub-Region. 

The roads were constructed under the Government of Uganda and the World Bank efforts through the Urban Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development Project (USMID). The project aims at improving the road network in the new municipalities across the country.

Addressing Kabale residents at the launch ceremony today, President Museveni asked all leaders from Kigezi Sub-Region in South Western Uganda to spread the gospel of commercial agriculture saying that once villages are empowered to produce food, automatically cities will also grow in response.

“These people in towns are people with saloons, markets and market stalls, and those come from villages. It is people in villages that sustain those in towns,” he said.

Kabale Municipality received Shs.13.5 billion support from the government of Uganda together with the World Bank to develop roads infrastructure along with other related infrastructural amenities.  The roads that total 3kms include Kigongi, Nyerere, Nyerere Avenue, Bank Lane, Keira and Nkunda.

President Museveni advised the people of the area to select enterprises that will give them quick financial returns if they are to fight poverty out of their homes. He emphasized the need for wnanchi to work for both food and income security to meet their modern-day family demands.

Following the commissioning of land offices in various regions across the country, President also launched Kabale Zonal Land Office to serve the people of Kigezi Sub Region in all land related matters. He handed over land tittles to some beneficiaries. ENDS
