By Sam Mugerwa
Lands Minister, Judith Nabakooba, is disappointed with the contractors executing USMID projects in the Western districts of Mbarara and Ntungamo.
Nabakooba was in the West Sunday to monitor progress on the works.
However, in a tweet Sunday evening, the Minister is disappointed with the contractors and that it is clear that despite regular reminders, “they won’t be able to deliver on contracted deadlines and results.”
“We shall seek guidance from all stakeholders on the way forward,” Nabakooba warned.
USMID is the Uganda Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development (USMID) Program.
Currently, the Government, with funding from the World Bank/IDA is implementing the second phase of the Program (USMID Additional Financing-USMID-AF).
Under this program, the government is enhancing Institutional Capacity of Selected Local Governments and eight selected municipalities, Ntungamo and Mbarara inclusive.
