CONSTRUCTION of the 46-kilometre Karuma-Olwiyo road in Acholi land has started.
The road, in Murchison Falls National Park, is part of a bigger project of tarmacking the Karuma-Olwiyo-Pakwach-Nebbi road, to link the northern region and southern Sudan.
Works minister Eng. John Nasasira on Saturday performed the ground-breaking ceremony for the works, funded by the World Bank.
