Fort portal municipal council has resumed the construction of its council chambers worth 4Bn.
The construction of a 4Bn shillings municipal council chambers project commenced in 2015 during the regime of Asaba Edison Ruyonga former mayor but stopped in the middle of the work due to lack of enough funds.
