Buyende, (UG):- The Buyende District Woman Member of Parliament, Hon Nakato Mary Annet has credited the government of Uganda for steering development in the district through various programs and projects.

The MP who was on Monday attending the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of Ndolwa Health Center III in Ndolwa sub-county, says they are enjoying some of the fruits of the government given the social services which are being emphasized.

The facility which was lobbied by among others; Hon Nakato, was contracted to BISCA Uganda Limited and is estimated to consume shs1.5b and is expected to be completed and commissioned before the end of June this year.

“We have managed to lobby this together with my colleagues and the ball is now in your hands to determine. We want to appreciate the ruling government of NRM for responding to our repeated calls whenever facing difficulty, at least we’re better than other regions and we also commend the government for various programs,” Hon Nakato said.

She also urged the public to apply for work at the construction site given the fact that the contractor is expected to recruit half of his team from the community of Ndolwa sub-county.

The structures at the Health Center III which will be constructed using the shs1.5b include the Outpatient department (OPD), the maternity ward, two staff houses, a placenta pit and a latrine block, and the authorities captioned the construction site.

The program manager in charge of monitoring the work from the health ministry Mr. Daniel Achoda assured the authorities to closely monitor the project and ensure that only quality work is produced.

The RDC Buyende District Rtd Major Akello Betty tasked the contractor to ensure quality work in relation to the BOQ other than doing contrary to what the BOQ says.

“I don’t what the issues of referring me to the paperwork of BOQ but I want actual work on ground and it’s why I’m asking the mixing ratio and the type of cement you’re going to use. I will come for commissioning if I happen to be here but when the structures develop any crack before commissioning, I  cannot allow it to be commissioned,” Rtd Major Akello said.

Meanwhile, Mr Senoga Moses, the director BISCA Uganda Limited, the contractor of the projects has pledged a total commitment to ensuring quality and said he will work in line with the terms and conditions of the contract.

Mr Senoga pledged to hand over the buildings by June this year and he called upon the community to apply for jobs at the site, adding that 50% of the workers will come from the community.

“We are going to work day and night and expect quality work, so I expect to hand over this project ready for use in June this year. I shall have about eighty workers and 40 of them will come from the community, therefore I call upon people to apply for these jobs,” Mr Senoga said on Monday.
