Local Community expressed satisfaction and thanked the Government for such infrastructure. One of the residents Mukashyaka Aisha said the bridge constructed in Rwampala cell came as a response to queries of residents, because the area was inaccessible for motorcycles, vehicles and even for pedestrians. ” We were completely cut off and sometimes we were passing night in rescuing people who frequently drowned in this area”

He also added that the road constructed is useful as it helps locals to access a Health Center, the Sector office and other infrastructures.
