SHEEMA- Communities have been encouraged engage in doing “Burungi Bwansi” as they wait for the shrinking Uganda’s economy to recover.
During his ground monitoring policing, the Sheema South MP, Prof. Elijah Dickens Mushemeza observed that the country was first hit by the covid-19 pandemic followed by the rising fuel prices, causing the country’s economy to decline.
Hon Prof. Mushemeza joined locals in Rwarisho cell, Rugarama sub county in Sheema District to fix Rwarisho Foot Bridge which had become accident prone due having won out materials since it was built many years ago.
He said that even when the government has not responded to its people’s cry, locals must ensure that their daily activities don’t stop thus calling upon Local leaders to always mobilize available resources and materials to fix their areas like foot bridges, Roads and water sources.
Prof. Mushemeza contributed money and materials towards the completion of the bridge and delivered 18 plastic chairs to Rubaare cell LC I Council in the same area.
