The chair­man of Kwali Area Coun­cil, Mr. Joseph K. Shazin, has said the coun­cil will soon em­bark on grad­ing of some bad ru­ral roads in the area.

Speak­ing to news­men shortly after the coun­cil ex­ec­u­tive meet­ing on Tues­day, Shazin, said roads such Tukurwa, Fogbe, Tun­gan Sarki and Kuchichacha were in de­plorable state, hence, the coun­cil has de­lib­er­ated at the meet­ing to award con­tract for the grad­ing and con­struc­tion of the cul­verts.

He said the bad state of roads had been af­fect­ing so­cioe­co­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties es­pe­cially ru­ral of farm­ers who al­ways trans­port their crops to mar­ket in Kwali.

He added that the coun­cil will em­bark on ren­o­va­tion of some clin­ics at ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties and en­sure drugs are avail­able to pa­tients.

The chair­man added that ar­range­ments have been con­cluded to ren­o­vate the coun­cil’s leg­isla­tive arm’s build­ing.
