The Contractor of Kabushaho seed secondary school in Bumbaire sub county Bushenyi district has been accused of producing shoddy work on the project he is yet to finish.
Khalsa Development Ltd was in 2019 granted a contract to construct a 2.3 billion shillings seed school at Kabushaho, Bumbaire subcounty Bushenyi district.
The project which is sponsored by the government of Uganda through the ministry of education was supposed to be complete by last year but was extended to March 2021 due to the outbreak of Covid pandemic.
The contractor was expected to build three classroom blocks of two classrooms each, ICT block, Administration block, Library, Laboratory, three staff houses and a playground.
However, the district chairman Jaffari Bassajabalaba and his team were during a recent tour at the school premises disappointed by the incomplete and shoddy work done by the contractor.
According to team members who talked to www.mknewslink.com , some of the buildings have already developed cracks on the floors, the doors used are of poor quality and they were poorly fitted in.
Basajabalaba agreed that the contractor has put some good work on some buildings but he has failed to complete the project in time plus some few defaults on the floors and ceiling.
Dan Taritweba, the chairperson Board of Governors told www.mknewslink.com reporter that many things are yet to be done such as landscaping while other items like shelves and tables for the library, computers for ICT have not been put in place.
Taritweba wants the contractor to either be given one month or he agrees to do the remaining work under the defunct liability period.
Residents who talked to this reporter accused the contractor of being on and off the site adding that it is for this reason that he has failed to complete his works in time.
Our reporter couldn’t verify the allegations since his calls also went unanswered.
