Bufunjo people’s forum, an advocacy group situated in Bufunjo Sub County, Kyenjojo district has mobilized community members mostly from the parishes of Nyamanga & Kisangi to construct Kahumbo Bridge connecting the two parishes. After making requests from the district leadership of Kyenjojo in vain the Forum leaders together with community members thought of involving one of the aspirants for the Mwenge north Member of Parliament in Kyenjojo district whom they contacted and accepted to support them with 12 culverts to construct the bridge. Their intervention started in August 2015 and in September 2015 they had got the culverts and put on the Kahumbo Bridge.

‘’We put the culverts on the bridge with the help of community members and people had started crossing to other parishes freely but due to the rains being much in the area, it has again affected peoples movements but once rain reduces or during dry season people will move freely without interference’’, said Tumwesigye Andrew the leader of the advocacy forum.
‘’ We thank the aspirant Mr. Akugizibwe Lawrence for the support in form of culverts, the people of Nyamanga & Kisangi parishes for the cooperation and ToroDev for the monthly facilitation and skills in monitoring service delivery, at least there is improvement where accessing other villages is not a big problem as it used to be’’, said Twineomujuni John, the Forum secretary.
We are grateful to our partners for the technical and financial support.
