Verification Of Katosi Project-Affected Persons Begins

The verification exercise for the Project Affected Persons under along Mukono-Kyetume-Katosi-Kisoga-Nyenga Road is expected to begin today.

This is after residents cried out over delayed compensation for their land where the road passed.

Elizabath Ninsima, a Land Acquisition Officer at the Uganda National Roads Authority says only people with valid documents will be considered for compensation.

The road made headlines last year when government lost over Sh24 billion to illegal contractors – Eutaw Construction Company.

Former Works minister, now minister without portfolio Abraham Byandala is among those implicated in the case and they are currently battling the charges before the Anti-Corruption Court.
