We made recommendations for the expansion and renovation of public utilities in the neighboring communities such as Buresuka Health Centre III. Kabaale Health Centre III and Buseruka Primary School, after the findings of the social economic baseline survey indicated that the Affected Persons would relocated to the neighboring communities. To date, expansion, renovation and relocation of the said facilities has been executed by the Inter-ministerial committee on implementation of livelihood and community development programmes.
