Kalungu district has finally launched the construction of its proposed headquarters.

The first phase of the three storied complex will cost Shillings 669million. The construction works will last for six months.   

 

Filda Naabirye, the Kalungu Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), says they have battling the challenge of office space, which cuts across departments.

Kalungu Resident District Commissioner, Caleb Tukaikiriza warned Victoria Construction Company, which has been contracted to execute the job against shoddy works.  

     

The Kalungu LC V Chairperson, Richard Kyabaggu asked leaders in the district to stop politicking and support the construction of their headquarters instead of looking for cheap popularity.

The entire construction work is valued at Shillings 2.8 billion. At Shillings 500million is from local revenue collection while the remaining money is expected to come from the central government.
