This road belongs to the central Government under the authority of the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA). UNRA delivered the culverts almost a month ago, but to date no work has commenced.

Pader District;

Local leaders in Pader district are concerned about the dilapidated state of businesses along E. Y Komakech road junction heading to the bus park after continuous flooding that has caused semi dam water logging covering over 100 meters along Uganda National Road Authority’s (UNRA) road.

The flooding set pace for discussion on many platforms that led to intervention from the district leaders, who expressed their grievances towards the delay by the UNRA to intervene and rectify the errors.

Hon Christopher Komakech, the Aruu county legislator, says there are delays from the government agency which is not only in Pader but country wide. He says this lucidity is not condoned with such constraints in works rather keeping tough on them to intervene.

Meanwhile, Mr Ray Charles Okwir, the Pader sub-county councilor V acknowledged the tragedy caused by the flooding saying the intervention requires political efforts from the RDC, all MPs and Pader DLG leadership to draw the attention of UNRA.

However; Mr Justine Ocen, the Pader district vice chairperson responded by saying that the office of the District Chairman and that of security have engaged UNRA office Kitgum about the bad spot. He adds that practical decisions to solve the problem were arrived at.

According to Ocen, UNRA made a promise to deliver their machines on ground before the close of this week for work to start especially on that bad spot. He further urged the populace to remain patient while addressing societal problems.
