We don’t know if the office in charge of roads in Wakiso District is aware and will be happy about this, but we cannot deny them the right to know about a major development going on in their area.
The news is that at the beginning of this week, real estate and construction tycoon Eng. Ronald Semakula of Rubeleto Construction Concern decided to work on the road that goes to his house in Bwebajja off Entebbe Road.
Rubeleto as he is commonly known, on Monday morning got two graders and started works on the two-kilometre stretch himself. The tycoon said he had pleaded with the authorities to work on the poor road but in vain. “I was tired of pleading yet I have everything it takes to construct even 500km road. I decided to do it myself and I am not scared about not following the right channels because my neighbours are happy with me,” Rubeleto told us.
The tycoon who refused to reveal how much the whole process cost him told us that the road will be done within two weeks. Rubeleto said he is ready to face any repercussions. He also said he is contemplating repair for part of the road that leads to his offices in Kololo if KCCA doesn’t come in to fill the potholes!
