The Shadow Minister for Environment Beatrice Anywar told Parliament that cutting down the trees is a misuse of taxpayers’ money because funds were allocated to plant the trees during the 2007 Common Wealth Heads of Government meeting (CHOGM).

The Uganda Minister of State for Local Government Pereza Ahabwe says, the trees were cut down because they were interfering with electric lines to Uganda State House of Entebbe.

Ahabwe says, he will first consult with other government line ministers before coming out with a concrete explanation on the matter.

The trees have been cut down on Entebbe road mainly in areas stretching from Lweza to Bwebajja.
