Ntungamo district on Tuesday handed over three brand new motorcycles to the extension workers in a bid to improve agricultural extension services and production.
While handing over the heavy-duty motorcycles under the UG BOSS brand at the district headquarters, Ntungamo resident district commissioner Geoffrey Mucunguzi called on the extension workers to put the motorcycles to good use by reaching out to the farmers and helping them produce more.
He also cautioned the users against overspeeding, which he said could result in the loss of lives.
The commissioner also commended the government and the Ministry of Agriculture in particular for supporting the district in improving advisory services.
Ntungamo District chief administrative officer Mathias Ndifuna revealed that the handing over of motorcycles means that the extension workers have no excuse for not reaching out to the farmers.
The handover was also witnessed by Ntungamo district chairman Samuel Muchunguzi Rwakigoba and was held at the district headquarters in Ntungamo Municipality
