HISTORY/PROFILE

Road

The main mode of transport is road. The estimated length of road in the municipality is 131.5km, comprising 16.5km trunk road, 100km urban road and 15km feeder road. Out of these, about 70%, 75% and 50% of the trunk, urban and feeder roads respectively are in bad state which negatively affects movement of humans and goods which is a disincentive for commercial activities in the municipality. Efforts should therefore be stepped up to improve the situation.

Housing

The common types of housing structures in the Municipality are single and two storeys. Houses are generally of the compound type in the older part while the new suburban and newly developing areas have modern houses. Cement blocks/concrete is the most predominant material used in the construction of the dwelling units. Metal sheet is the main roofing material. There is huge demand for accommodation which has contributed to high rent charges by landlords. It is therefore imperative that more houses must be provided to meet the high demand in the Municipality.

Economy of the Municipality

The major activities that support the municipal economy are; agriculture (50.9%) trade and commerce (20.1%), industry (13.1%) and services (hotels, banking, insurance, transport, etc) (15.9%). These figures show that agriculture is the mainstay of the municipal economy.

Energy

The Municipality has over 90% coverage in terms of electricity supply. Other sources of energy are kerosene, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and firewood.

Water

The main sources of drinking water for households in the Municipality are pipe-borne, borehole and wells. Rural water coverage stands at 71.1%, while that of the urban area is 90%. Water resources in the Municipality are polluted through indiscriminate dumping of waste

Sanitation

Solid waste management in the Municipality is carried out through collaboration between the Assembly and private waste management company namely, Zoomlion. There are 30 refuse containers, 4 trucks and 411 dust bins for managing the solid waste. The refuse containers are placed at designated dumping sites while the dust bins are issued to households and business entities.

Information and Communication Technology

All the telecommunication networks, namely, MTN, Vodafone, Airtel/Tigo and Glo are operating in the Municipality. Among these, MTN has the widest network coverage and highest number of subscribers. The operations of these telecommunication companies have enhanced communication within the municipality and between the municipality and communities outside. Few communities in the remote part of the municipality are however, having difficulties accessing these networks.
