“The Kigumba-Bulima-Kabwoya- Kyenjojo Road and the Mubende-Kakumiro- road they were to be construed despite the absence of Oil and Gas Discovery in the region because their construction work was under the government project aimed at connecting various roads in Bunyoro Region to other roads in different parts of the country to promote tourism and agricultural production but not due to the oil discovery,” Museveni said.

Museveni added that the NRM government had already gathered funds for the construction activities of these roads and therefore those who are alleging the construction of Bunyoro roads to the oil and gas discovery are giving false information.

“The NRM government has already paid the debts for the roads that have been constructed in the Albertine Region and therefore am urging the Banyoro to utilize these roads effectively so as to improve your standards of living”. he added.
