The District Speaker of Kamwenge District Hon Twebaze Gerald has thanked ToroDev for creating a plat form for the local leaders to give accountability to their local people. This was during ToroDev’s supported live radio accountability program on Better FM called “The Listeners Forum” on 3rd November 2013. “I thank ToroDev for sponsoring this program that has created a plat form for the local leaders to give accountability to the local people which has created awareness among the local citizens”.
During the live radio discussion, Hon Gerald was also able to give accountability to the local people. “We have held council meetings every after two months and councilors from different sub counties have been given chance to raise issues concerning their sub counties. During these meetings, the local leaders are also asked to give accountability concerning their different offices”.

The live radio discussion was also attended by Mr. Ategeka Christopher, the Regional coordinator of Rwenzori Youths Leaders Forum in Kabarole District, Mr. Aleluah Godfrey, a local citizen of Karugutu Town Council in Ntoroko District and Mr. Ntabangwa George, a local citizen from Kamwenge District.
Mr. Aleluah highlighted the status of service delivery in Ntoroko District. “I thank the central government for constructing Fort Portal – Lamya road, however, the bridges constructed along the road are too small compared to the volume of water that flows from the mountains. Wasa Bridge is also in its sorry state and three people have so far lost their lives due to the flooding waters of River Wasa. Kibokoli, Kisanga and Kigara villages all in Ibanda Parish in Karugutu Town Council lack safe water, people are sharing river water with animals like cattle and pigs”.
Meanwhile, Hon Gerald went ahead to give more accountability to the local people. “In the health sector, we have built maternity wards in Rukunyu, Ntara, Kanara, Kahungye and Kyagara health centers. We also lobbied electricity to Ntara and Rukunyu health centers. We have also built classrooms, teachers quarters and offices at Kyeihemba, Mukukuru and Kamugamuzi Primary Schools. Roads such as Ntonwa-Kyakaitaba-Biguli road, Kyakaraba-Busiriba-Bujongobe road, Rukoko-Busingye road and Kabuga- Kamenge road have been constructed”.
The live radio discussion was moderated by Mukonyezi Wilfred.
