‘’This is Kisanja Hakuna Mchezo and the government has released sh20b for compensating people settling along this circular road. We expect the compensations to start late this year or early next year,’’ Namuyangu said

 

‘’Government is appealing to those families settling along Tirinyi, Pallisa-Kumi and Pallisa- Kamonkoli road not to resist and also cooperate with authorities that will be carrying out the exercise in order to pave way for the construction of the road,’ Namuyangu said

Namuyangu said that politics is over and appealed to residents to remain united, work hard, embrace government developmental programs to eradicate poverty in their households.
