Mbarara: Authorities fault road contractors over failure to meet deadline

Mbarara City Council leaders have expressed disappointment of failure of the contractors to meet the deadline to complete the construction of three city roads.

In May 2021, Multiplex Limited and Ditaco International Trade were awarded a joint contract to construct three roads in the city under the Uganda Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development-USMID.

The roads include; Major Victor Bwana measuring 0.95 km, Galt Road measuring 0.65KM and Stanley Road measuring 0.78 km in Mbarara City all at the cost of UGX 23 billion.

The road construction which was supposed to end in April 2022, was extended three times but still it’s not yet completed.

Mbarara City Mayor, Robert Mugabe Kakyebezi said that much as they are waiting for Parliament to approve a supplementary budget of UGX 20 billion, the contractor may not beat the deadline to complete the works.

The Mbarara City Clerk, Assy Abireebe Tumwesigye noted that the contractor stands to be fined UGX 2.3 billion if he fails to meet the deadline because the city council has fulfilled all its obligations in the project.

Efforts to contact Isaac Kalule, the Multiplex Limited head engineer were futile as he did not answer our reporter’s calls.
