PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Kankoyo Member of Parliament (MP) Brian Mushimba has spent about K390, 000 on the purchase of a Mitsubishi Canter, sinking six boreholes and three hammer mills to be used in various parts of the constituency.
Mr Mushimba said he had decided to spend K390, 000 on the truck, boreholes and hammer mills as a way of setting the stage for fulfilling his campaign promises of improving people’s lives in various parts of the constituency which have been facing various challenges.
The PF Kankoyo MP, who is an Electrical Engineer who has worked for Escom in Uganda and South America at various Senior Management positions, has spent K170, 000 on the purchase of Mitsubishi Canter, K150,000 on six boreholes and K69,000 on the three hammer mills.
“In PF, we want to prove our critics wrong by starting to fulfill our campaign promises early. We don’t want to start giving excuses, but we want to set the stage of fulfilling campaign promises. So as a way of fulfilling campaign promises, I have spent K390, 000 on the purchase of a Mitsubishi Canter, six boreholes and three hammer mills to be used in various parts of the constituency. “The vehicle will be used for transportation of people and various goods while boreholes will be used to improve the water situation in various parts of the constituency, especially the remote areas. We are just setting the stage, a lot more will come,” Mr Mushimba said.
He also said he would soon engage the Ministry of Local Government on the C400 road rehabilitation programme to work on the roads in the constituency which were in bad state.
He said, during his campaign, he had promised to work on the road infrastructure and so he would work hard to deliver on his campaign promises to gain the confidence of the people.
“As I told you, we have already started fulfilling our campaign promises to prove critics wrong. So even on the issue of road rehabilitation, we will work on it to give a facelift to Kankoyo constituency. This is why, we will be engaging the Ministry of Local government on the C400 road rehabilitation programme,” he said.
