Bukinda Sub County Offices

RUKIGA, UGANDA: The newly constructed administration block to house Bukinda Sub County headquarters in Rukiga District has developed serious cracks before completion as the Acting District Deogratius Mutabazi is grilled for failing to supervise the construction works.

Rukiga District contracted Famdec Construction Company to undertake the construction works in two phases. The first phase was done in the financial year 2021/2022 at the tune of 48 million shillings and the second phase was executed in this financial year at the tune of 46 million shillings. Phase two was concluded in December last year.

Now, yesterday a team of the state house monitoring and the Anti-corruption Unit inside the State House led by the Deputy Director attached to the Internal Security Organization, Ms Fatuma Namukwaya yesterday visited the site after receiving complaints from the Resident District Commissioner Fred Nayebare Kyamuzigita. It was discovered that the floor and the ceiling had developed serious cracks hence no value for money.

The Bukinda Sub County chairperson Jack Tugume said that it was the second time the ceiling collapsed due to substandard work. He recommended that works on the ceiling and flooring be repeated or else, they will not occupy the building.

Namukwaya said that the state house anti-corruption unit will take it up to investigate why there was shoddy work and how much was paid to the contractor.
