By Moses Ndhaye

The Uganda Society of Architects has partnered with Kampala Capital City Authority as one way of addressing cases of collapsing buildings in the city.

The Board Chairman of the Society of Architects Wills Olanya says by law engineers are required to display on a signpost details such as the name of the Site Engineer and other Engineers contracted for the construction works.

Over the past few years, the country has witnessed several cases of buildings collapsing, killing scores of people. Most of these cases have been recorded in Kampala with the latest incident occurring in April 2016 in the Kampala suburb of Wandegeya.

He says this partnership will help to weed out fake engineers and firms that do substandard work.
