PM Rugunda Tips Contractors

The Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda has challenged contractors to ensure timely completion of government and project contracts so as to ensure value for money.

He says this will enable them address the hurdles brought about by the bureaucracy involved in the procurement process.

Dr. Rugunda was on Friday presiding over the ground breaking ceremony for the construction and tarmacking of three feeder roads in Kabale Municipality where he also appealed to the benefiting community to use the tarmac roads to get out of the vicious cycle of poverty.

Stones Construction Company has been contracted to construct and tarmac the three roads in Kabale municipality in a period of 12 months at a cost of Shs13bn.

Kabale Municipality is among the 14 selected municipalities that benefited from the Uganda Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development project funded by World Bank and the construct of these roads have delayed because of the delayed procurement process.
