Aisa revealed that there is great need to expedite compensation for residents (especially those of Kyerimira cell) who offered their land for development of the road that goes through Bugangaizi East. She says this has taken long and her people are yearning to receive it for them to use it in other ventures.
She pointed out the issue of access roads, humps on key points like education institutions, churches, mosques etcetera and roads signs to help users be guided properly in addition to solving a challenged of electric wires passing on top of some homesteads which poses a great risk.
She cites that absence of this will increases accidents and limit peoples’ access to the road from their homesteads.
