Transport along Rwenshama road in Queen Elizabeth national park, Bwambara sub county, Rukungiri district was today paralyzed  after the rising water levels of river Nchwera cut of the road at around 10am

According to Keneth Niwagaba the local council 2 chairperson Rweshama parish Bwambara sub county, most of the water in river Nchwera originates   from Kiyanga and Bitereko sub counties in Mitooma district that feed the river which in turn pours its waters in Lake Edward.

He added that also water levels of lake Edward at Rwenshama landing site   have increased putting people’s lives at risk  

 Motorists heading to the Rwenshama landing site are now forced to use small boats to carry their motorcycles since they have no alternative route to the landing site .

Those motorylists crossing the   cut off section pay between shs 3000-5000 whereas people pay 1000 to   cross the waters.

  Rweshama landing site has only one access route which has forced traders  to ask  government through Rukungiri district local government  to look for an alternative access route
