Uganda: Museveni Ignores Budaka MPs Pleas

MPs from Budaka district have challenged President Museveni to fulfill his election campaign pledges.

Museveni has promised, in three campaigns, to construct Kamonkoli - Pallisa and Tirinyi - Pallisa roads, which connect Budaka, Kibuku and Pallisa districts. But he has not delivered, as he has failed to elevate Budaka health centre IV to a district hospital, as promised.

MPs Jeremiah Twatwa (Ikiiki) and Sarah Kataike Ndoboli, (Budaka woman) expressed their displeasure to the president at a public rally in Budaka recently, urging him to pressurise the concerned ministries to act. Museveni, who was breaking the ground for a cement factory in Mugiti sub- county in Budaka, did not respond, only telling the gathering that he had repaid their support by appointing Kataike as minister of state for health.
