In Summary

Own up. The legislators have blamed ministers for misleading the President

After President Museveni this week condemned the roads authority and listed the six-year-old institution amongst the seven problems the country faces, a list of 138 road projects that have either been abandoned or have been stuck in procurement for years has been revealed.

The list of unfulfilled government undertakings in the roads sector, compiled by the House accountability committee on Government Assurances, indicates that some key roads across the country have not been worked on since 1986. Others have continuously been recorded in the government budgets framework documents for political expedience

“Why do you promise people roads when you don’t have the money?” the committee chairperson, Mr Kassiano Wadri asked. “You are the people who mislead the President. He keeps promising people roads and for years, his promises have remained on paper. This politicking must stop, Ugandans want services”.
Out of the 138 projects, about 30 roads were promised by President Museveni during the previous presidential campaigns.

President Museveni this week told NRM’s National Conference that the Uganda National Roads Authority has become a problem to the country.

Noting poor performance at UNRA, and despite the progress in road infrastructure development across the country, the Authority that receives Shs1.7 trillion per annum but “has nothing much to account for the funds it has been receiving,” Mr Museveni said.
