He was speaking to journalists during a press conference on Sunday at Mondi hotel in Kisoro municipality.
Hon. Nandala Mafabi, said that central government has ignored tourism roads in Kisoro yet the tourism industry is the leading foreign exchange earner in Uganda. He maintains that the economy of Kisoro district would change if tourism roads are worked on.
He also hinted on the John Kale Institute of science and technology (JKIST), a Presidential pledge that has never been honoured since 2017.
Nandala asserted that most of electorates in Kisoro are being used like a ladder by the ruling party to achieve its goals. He asked electorates to vote for change if they are to get better service delivery.
Hon. Roland Kagyinda Mugume, the vice chairperson Forum for Democratic Change Western region commended people in Kisoro district for slowly embracing change in politics. He vowed that FDC team is determined to guard their votes from being rigged.
