The Authorities in Kamuda Sub County and the community at large are worried about the delayed commencement of the construction of Kamuda Seed Secondary School.
According to Joseph Ebanu, the Local Council Three Chairperson Kamuda Sub County, the project was meant to have commenced in July this year but up to date not even materials have been brought to the proposed site.
He tasked the Soroti County MP, Patrick Aeku to make a follow up saying his efforts to get clarification are not yielding results.
“The seed secondary school has been delayed, in the budget conference we were told it will come but no one can tell you why it’s delayed. In July we were told its money had come and materials would be brought to the site around July. I tried to consult with the Deputy CAO Soroti, I was told there is some struggle at the ministry,” he said.
However, Abraham Ekwaru, the communication Officer Soroti District said the District had started a procurement process to secure a contractor to undertake the construction of Kamuda seed secondary school but was stopped on grounds that the UPDF engineering brigade was taking over the construction of all government infrastructure.
He said the school is already a government program and teachers have been recruited and on payroll.
“For now we ask the people of Kamuda to be patient as a district, we are committed to provide services to our people. We had started our process locally but we were stopped so right now we are waiting for the communication from the ministry but the money is there meant for that project,” he said.
