Minister Magyezi gives ROKO construction Ltd one week to complete Mbarara Central Market.
Local Government Minister, Raphael Magyezi has given ROKO construction Ltd one week to have finished construction of Mbarara central market.
The construction of the central market that started in February 2018 was supposed to be completed in February 2020, costing shs21 billion under World Bank Uganda Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development Program (USMID) but up to now, it is going on.
Minister Magyezi while visiting the site opposite former Nakumatt in Mbarara city, he was shocked to find out that construction is underway without enough manpower and the contractor has never applied for extension of the finishing date yet it elapsed in February.
‘They have one week to complete and they should involve government if they are facing any challenge’,Magyezi.
