The district Engineer for Wakiso District Eng Mwesigwa Sam has credited the citizens of Wakiso for the good work done towards development of their country after accepting to give out their land for free so that a good road could come into existence.
This was said in a consultative meeting between the citizens of Wakiso District and the Construction Sector Transparency Initiative (COST).
The meeting took place at Lufuka at the home of Salongo Muwanga where various citizens expressed their views towards the construction of the main road of Ndejje Namasuba road.
Eng Mwesigwa said that inspite of the fact that people are accepting to give out parts of their land, there is still a problem of people who build in the road reserves intentionally. This act Mwesigwa said is very bad.
He added that they have a contract of Shs23m which is released in phases on top of which is not given on time.
“The money that the government gives us does not allow us to do the work in the planned time yet we signed a contract with government.” Said Mwesigwa.
Mwesigwa first showed the progress of the Ndejje Namasuba road where he took visitors and citizens including the Director COST international Tom Hawkins where he showed them the places that are still a problem.
Lufuka valley swamp is one of the areas that have given him hard time due to the fact that the place needs to be leveled higher yet the citizens buildings are very low. On this note Mwesigwa advised people to construct their houses with a plan that suits the development of the area.
The road that begins from Batabata at Namasuba serves as a direct solution to traffic jam along Entebbe road.
