The state of the roads has made life difficult for schoolgoers, commuters and business people trying to get their goods to the market.

INFRASTRUCTURE

MUKONO - It is the season of the rains and in many areas, the wet weather gives rise to a number of problems.

Take, for instance, the roads of Nakisunga sub-county in Mukono district.

The state of the roads has made life difficult for the people living and working there.

 

It is understood that more children are missing school due to flooded roads. Those who make the effort to reach school have to do it the hard way.

 


While touring some of the affected roads in the area, New Vision found children wading through the waters of River Ssezibwa.

 

The children said that since the second term kicked off,  they had only started going to school on Monday because Sezibwa River had swelled due to the rains.

 


But it is not only the schoolgoers suffering.

 


Business people and regular commuters are also strugging to move from point A to point B.

 


Some were seen trying to take their goods to the market - but with a lot of difficulty.

Some of the affected roads include: Nakisunga-Mpatta, Katwe-Katente, Bumbajja-Nsonga, Byafula-Ssezibwa, Seeta-Nazigo-Kigombya and Nakisunga-Namakwa.

 


When contacted for a comment, Nakisunga sub-county chairman Mubarak Ssekikubo said the affected roads fall in the docket of the district.

He said some of these roads were last worked on in 2014.
