faults the municipal leaders for failing to provide them with the work plans, saying
they even started the road works without notifying them.

Francis Barabanaiwe, the Mbarara Town clerk, says providing
the BOQs would create more problems if not explained well to the residents.

financial years on surveyor who failed to visit the road, which led to poor
