Kudos to Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA)

By Ms. Norah Owaraga 

The patience and calm with which UNRA officials handled my case and the two other cases that I observed them handle, with respect of us, the citizens, however irate some citizens were; and UNRA’s recognition and consultation of our cultural institutions is everything that I expect from a civil servant. Kudos to UNRA! 

On Monday, 14th May 2018, I experienced and observed officers of the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) who were at work in Pallisa in Eastern Uganda, about 200km by road north-east from Kampala Capital City. The UNRA officers were in Pallisa handling compensation matters in relation to the up-grading and widening of the Pallisa-Kumi road. The contracted road constructors, Arabs apparently, are already in Pallisa and have reportedly begun to source local employees and service providers. 

Other government departments, particularly so the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development (MLHUD) should emulate UNRA.
