By Byamukama Libino.
The Kabale District deputy RDC Ronald Bakaki has ordered the Kabale district Chief Administrative officer Mr Fled Keryesubura to make a report about kyabakonjo gravity flow scheme after finding out the project without proper documents.
Kyabakonjo gravity flow scheme is a project aimed at supplying clean tapped water to the community in Kafunjo parish and it is located in Male Male cell, Kafunjo parish, and Buhara Sub county Kabale district.
Speaking to our reporter in his office, the Kabale district deputy RDC Bakaki Ronald said that on Thursday 19th January the district Authorities had traveled to Buhara Sub County to handle over the project but it was a disgrace to them after climbing a hill of 2.5km only to find out no documents in regard to kyabakonjo gravity flow scheme
“I was just seeing people putting on yellow reflectors, I don’t know who they are, they didn’t have any identification, am handing over this site to which company, who is the contractor and what shows that these are the rightful contractors? “Bakaki added
The deputy RDC questioned the terms and conditions that were given to the Ghost contractors. He added that he didn’t see the bills of quantities (BOQs), cost of the project, and the contract agreement.
“I just heard that the project costs 45 million, where is the proof? Mr CAO, am really disappointed and am directing you to investigate this project and give a report” Bakaki added.
Bakaki questioned the intention of the Deputy CAO taking the district Authorities to Buhara and what they had wanted to hand over. Do you want the RDC to carry out the soil and give it out to the Ghost contractor? No, it’s all about documentation, it’s all about documentation “he repeated
A political leader who preferred anonymity told our reporter that the district engineer who had all the documents concerning the site handover had forgotten and traveled with them to Mbarara.
She added that they are soon having a meeting to harmonies the situation
However according to the Kabale district deputy RDC Bakaki Ronald, they (District Authorities) had traveled with the district engineer to handover the site who later disappeared along the way before reaching at the project site
