Travelers along Mbale- Moroto road are being advised to use the alternative routes after Kyesibire Bridge was washed away by torrential rains.
The bridge is located in Bunambuti division of Bulambuli District. Elgon region Police spokesman Rogers Taitika says the regional traffic police and the district leadership are in touch with the Uganda National Roads Authority to find a possible solution.
“The Bridge is found in Bunambuti subcounty and it has been washed away by this torrential rain we are experiencing these days mostly in this elgon region.
So, we are appealing the road users of this route to use alternative routes like this one of Mbale to Soroti then you connect to Moroto. Right now, we are in touch with UNRA oficials to see that they come and address this situation.”
