UGANDA National Roads Authority (UNRA), has contracted a Chinese Company called China Railway Group to tamac Namasuba-Nyanama-Kitebi road and work is expected to start within only 60 days!
This comes after area Member of Parliament Mukasa Aloysius Talton Gold announced a mass demonstration in a protest against this road which is in a very sorry state!
On Monday last week, opposition MP Aloysius Mukasa gave Works and Transport minister Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala an ultimatum of 21 days to reconstruct this road which is full of potholes, drainage systems blocked and has turned into a den of thieves according to the residents of not, he leads a demonstraction.
Hon. Mukasa who visited areas where this road passes, said enough is enough, he has on many times engaged Gen. Katumba Wamala and UNRA to work on this road but turned deaf ears, threatening to mobilize hundreds of residents to demonstrate saying it is the only language authorities understand.
Rubaga South MP Mukasa revealed that, “Government collects exhorbitant taxes from our people, but it is absurd that taxpayers in return are made to walk or drive on such a road full of potholes! As peoples’ representative in Parliament, i cant sit by and fold hands as roads in my constituency become impassable. We will rise up and i can assure you, those in charge will sweat plasma.” Said MP Mukasa who is known for his super mobilization tactics if it comes to leading demonstrations against poor service delivery and violation of human rights.
Latest from UNRA, the contractor is identified and all material got, only remaining is the road design/plan and then work kicks off!
“We have been contracted by UNRA not KCCA to work on Muzito (Namasuba-Nyanama-Kitebu) road. Almost every thing required to fix this road is in place, we are waiting for the road plan and then work starts.” Mr. Mica Friday, an Engineer from China Railway Company told MP Mukasa during a meeting on Friday, requesting the MP to hold on with the demonstration.
We are reliably informed, Rubaga Mayor Zachy Mberaze Mawula requested area MP to call off plans for the demonstration because his prayers had been answered.
Rubaga Mayor briefed Hon. Mukasa and even convinced him to visit the contractor’s office for more information.
At the contractor’s office in Nyanama near Movit Company, Hon. Mukasa was given two month to start work on the road which duration the MP didnt agree with. 
“We can only wait for one month. My people are suffering because of the road. Organise yourself and start within one week.” Demanded MP Mukasa.
On behalf of the contractor, Mr. Mica Friday promised to be filling the potholes as they wait for the road plan and then permanent tarmac starts.
Nyanama road which Hon. Mukasa demands to be urgently fixed stretches from Freedom City Namasuba (Freedom City) on Entebbe road and goes through Nyanama to Kitebi at a place commonly known as ‘Star.’  This road connects Entebbe road and Kabuusu -Lweza road.
Hon. Mukasa says, it’s true all roads especially in Kampala need urgent overhaul but Namasuba – Nyanama-Kitebi road is deplorable.
“When you happen to use this road, what quickly comes to your mind is an aged government that is steadily going down hill and in fear waiting for its eventual death.This road is in fact the beginning of hell. All the potholes here are in fact a death trap yet the road connects travellers to Entebbe Airport road!” Revealed Hon. Mukasa.
Taking a walk on Nyanama road, MP Aloysius Mukasa noted the rate at which motor vehicles and motorcycles using this road are breaking-down each day that passes by. The level of insecurity on the road is high, as the road has become a den of thieves since cars are forced to move at a very slow speed.
“Travellers are missing flights, using the road is costly in terms of fuel and time yet it is a shortcut to Entebbe Airport road. We will firsr go to Gen. Katumba in peace but if his ministry becomes adamant, Rubaga South people will use another language.” Said MP Mukasa.
Namasuba-Nyanama road is a collection of potholes, the drainage system has broken down. when it rains, the road turns into a swimming pool yet it is one of the busiest road.
Hon. Mukasa who is used recess to walk around his constituency said, Rubaga South being a business constituency is contributing a lot to the Government treasury but there is no value for taxes paid. 
Thank God that the road is going to be constructed.
