Operational Challenges affecting the road sector in Kasese district
  • Heavy rains and floods; which disrupt road works
  • Inadequate and weak road equipment; the district has only one grader which can be deployed on soft grounds yet the district has a rocky terrain. Besides the district has 23 rural sub counties and 3 urban councils which share this single machine.
  • Mountainous terrain makes road opening difficult and vulnerable to erosion and landslides
  • Late releases from central government
  • Budget cuts
  • Frequent breakdown of Road equipment
  • Destruction of vegetation covers (Deforestation, bush burning, brick making and stone quarrying)
