The government has commissioned road projects connecting Kasese District to Katunguru, an area on the southern banks of the Kazinga Channel, which links Lake George with Lake Edward.

The road projects include the 58 kilometres of a stretch that starts at Hima Town and traverses through Kasese Municipality, Queen Elizabeth National Park and ends at Katunguru Bridge.

The 170 billion Shillings project was completed as part of the efforts to develop infrastructure and address key bottlenecks that were hampering the mobility of tourists to Queen Elizabeth National Park.

It is also expected to improve regional movements within South-western Uganda and international linkage through Kikorongo-Mpondwe on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The State Minister for ICT and National Guidance Godfrey Kabyanga urged residents to utilize the roads to improve their general livelihood. Kabyanga also cautioned local leaders in the district against personalizing government projects.
