RDC Kaguta warned the contractor, against doing shoddy work and asked them to give value for money.
You have the bills of quantities (BoQ) you have to follow during this construction process don’t be tempted to work against them.
The Rubabo County Member of Parliament Hon. Mary Paula Turyahikayo asked the residents and leaders to selflessly guard and monitor this project.
The Chief Administrative Office Elias Byamungu cautioned the contractor to grant workers some time to visit their families to avoid them involving in irregular affairs with area residents which may lead to increased unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.
“We are yet to see works commence here, but to you the contractors ensure sometime to these labourers at least a week or days so that they can check on their families” said Mr. Byamungu.
Byamungu added, “Families have broken down because many contractors do not want to guarantee to leave to labourers resulting into community under development”.
Frank Mabwa the Katenga LC1 chairperson said the school will ease access to education within the parish noting that students have been moving 20KMs to access education, making it hard especially for the girl child to complete her studies.
The project will run for a year and Eng. Patrick Mugisha of MUPA Technical Services promised to kick off the works with immediate effect and undertook to deliver quality work.
Andrewson Katebire the LC5, Dr. Jackson Nzarirwehi, District Education Officer, Charles Kahanyi the Chairperson LC3 Kebisoni Sub-County, among others attended the launch.
