Magezi added that in addition to tabling the motion in council, he and other leaders would bring a government valuer with the aim of establishing how much money the people who will be affected by the project will need and later request the uganda land fund for money that they will use to compensat them.
Bosco Muhanuzi, the mayor Hoima east division said they were engaging the Uganda National Roads Authority so that it can get in touch with Anadan so that the road can be constructed for development and and reduction of traffic jam in the city.
He also supported the idea of blocking the renewal of Anadan’s lease due o his actions.
