On 4th January 2014, the Chairperson LCV of Kabarole District Hon Rwabuhinga Richard appeared on HITS FM to read out the strategic plan for 2014 and the achievements in the last six months of the financial year. “In the last six months of the financial year, we realized a lot of achievements basically in the education sector, health sector, roads sector, agriculture sector and water sector. However, all the sectors still need a lot to be done and we intend to deliver some of the services that are allocated in our strategic plan in the remaining six months of the financial year”. This was during ToroDev’s supported live radio accountability program on HITS FM called ‘Orukurato Program’ that discusses issues of accountability every Saturday (8:00 – 10:00pm).
“In 2011, we got six hundred and eighty (680) pupils in first grade and in 2012, we got (one thousand and eighty four (1084) pupils all in government aided schools that are outside the municipality in Kabarole District. I therefore appeal to parents to join hands with the local leaders to support the program for its further improvement rather than criticizing it. We have also constructed two classroom blocks, delivered head masters’ seats, book shelves and 36 desks in schools like Kitonzi, Kasura, Kamabale, and Kyatambara Primary Schools”.
