The Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) council has resolved to name two roads in Nsambya Makindye division after the late Archbishop of Kampala Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga in appreciation of his distinguished services rendered to the country during his lifetime.
The two roads are Nsambya Estate that stretches from Total to Nsambya St. Francis hospital to American Embassy up to KFC Kabalagala road and also Gogonya road proposed by Makindye West ll Councilor Allan Atuhaire saying that the two roads led to the Uganda Episcopal conference in which Dr. Lwanga has been a party.
Atuhaire further emphasizes in his submission that Nsambya Estate road should most be considered since it is occupied by Catholic institutions like schools, a church and a hospital something that was seconded by councilors Moses Mugisha Okwera and Alice Amongi both representing Nakawa 1.
In his speech, the KCCA Council Speaker Abubaker Kawalya agreed with most of the councilors about naming the two mentioned roads after the late Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga saying that the fallen Archbishop was a staunch advocate of good governance and human rights whose death was a big loss to the country.
Meanwhile, the proposal for the Authority Council Deputy Speaker who is also the Kyambogo Councilor, Bruhan Byaruhanga of having Nsambya Estate road be named after the former Uganda Taxi Operators and Drivers Association (UTODA) Chairperson Hajji Musa Katongole failed to succeed after receiving several rejections from the Councilors saying that they don’t see any legacy he left for the people of Kampala.
