By KGR Reporter,
The Minister of Local Government Raphael Magyezi yesterday declined to commission a multi-million newly constructed market in Omoro District because it was incomplete.
Magyezi had been invited along with the State Minister for Northern Uganda Rehabilitation Grace Freedom Kwiyucwyiny by Omoro district leaders to preside over the commissioning of Lela-obaro Market in Bobi Sub-county.
The new market worth 700 million Shillings was constructed under the Development Initiative for Northern Uganda with funding from the UN Capital Development Fund.
However, during a tour of the newly constructed facility, the ministers found out that some of the structures hadn’t been fully completed by the contractor, Civo Construction Services Ltd.
Speaking to local leaders and market vendors at the Market site, Magyezi said the market won’t be commissioned until it’s fully complete and gave a one-month ultimatum to the contractor to finish up ten percent of the work. Hon. Magyezi speaking….
He directed that the contractor must first complete the perimeter wall, doors for stalls, recreational facilities for children, bulking room, and lighting points among others. END.
