The drainage system was in shambles, he claimed even after a contractor had been hired to do the works and received payment.

He  pledged to compile a report on the same  seeking intervention from the authorities to among others put in place a sewerage system.

Abagusii Culture and Development Council secretary general Bosire Angwenyi also a resident of the town, suggested prompt action to be taken to install the much-required town’s urban facilities.
