Tororo County MP Geoffrey Ekanya has called for a judicial commission of inquiry into the road sector.
Ekanya told journalists at parliament that the commission will look at the entire process beginning with the awarding of contracts, how they are supervised and whether there is valve for money.
He says a lot of money has been allocated to the road sector but most of the roads across the country are impassible.
Several MPs have threatened to mobilize their constituents to demonstrate over poor roads in the country.
Every financial year, since 2009 the roads sector has been receiving 1 trillion shillings for roads but they are still in a sorry state.
Yesterday the shadow minister for works and transport Wafula Ogutu attributed the increasing rate of accidents to the structure of roads in the country.
Ogutu said that the roads in Uganda are in sorry state and therefore there is no way accidents can be controlled without working on them.
