Mr. Kaggwa expressed the mobility challenges he encountered while conducting parish information meetings and group verification exercises due to the high costs of hiring a motorcycle. He narrated that it was difficult to reach the five different sub counties of; Ikumbya, Waibuga, Bulongo, Nawampiti and Bukoma in the district and with the motorcycle in place, it will ease his mobility as he continues to monitor the different village agents and saving groups in the different sub counties.
He added that, upon receiving the motorcycle in June, his mobility is eased and has been able to monitor two different parishes per subcounty and will continue with the verification exercises.
