However, emerging information from DRC, indicate that due to some interference from United States, the steady progress on road construction has been halted.

President museveni’s plans of constructing roads in Congo have hit a dead end after reports in forests deep in Congo say Dott Services construction workers have been ordered to stop any construction whilst they risk undesirable consequences.
Following orders from the USA to congolese president and government officials not to accept museveni’s plans in DRC, now the State minister for the East African Community Affairs James Magode Ikuya has confirmed that the government of Uganda is in high level talks with officials from President Felix Tshisekedi over the Shs243.7bn road construction deal signed with President Museveni in 2020.

The Minister revealed that they have received a complaint from Dott Services Company which was contracted to construct roads from Kasindi-Beni, Kasindi-Butembo Axis and Bunagana-Rutshuru-Goma road projects that they were told to stop what they were doing and leave immediately.
