President Museveni has ordered for the establishment of civil construction units in the ministry of education and sports to build school classrooms and teachers staff houses cheaply than hiring expensive private contractors.
The president said that majority of private contractors use borrowed money and hired construction equipment which compels them to do less work.
He was speaking during centenary celebrations at Mbarara Junior primary school where he laid a foundation stone for the construction of a vocation skills training wing.
He commended religious institutions for starting up schools that have contributed greatly to development of education in the country.
Museveni later on laid a foundation stone for the construction of the Muslim hospital and also attended the inauguration of Sheikh Mukwaya Abdulla the new district Khadi Mbarara.
The inauguration ceremony was presided over by Mufti of Uganda Ramathan Mubaje who warned Muslims to stop fighting each other in mosques which is regarded a holy place.
He urged them to leave in harmony, love each another and respect government leaders if they are to be true Muslims in this country.
