Compensation Delays Work on Kashenyi-Mitooma Road

Works along the 12-kilometre stretch that connects Mitooma district to Ishaka -Kagamba road in Bushenyi district commenced in early 2017. It was anticipated to be completed by January 31, 2018.
Delays in the compensation of locals have slowed down the construction of Kashenyi-Mitooma road.

Works along the 12-kilometre stretch that connects Mitooma district to Ishaka -Kagamba road in Bushenyi district commenced in early 2017. It was anticipated to be completed by January 31, 2018.

However, more than three months after the completion deadline, the construction by Chinese construction Company CICO remains incomplete. By the end of March 2018, only 27.81 percent of works had been executed.

Sources from the contractors indicate that Uganda National Roads Authority-UNRA and the government are yet to complete the compensation process yet locals were equally hesitant to allow the contractor use their land before they are fully compensated.

UNRA project engineer Phillip Kitimba acknowledges that a number of residents have not been compensated adding that this has greatly slowed down the construction works. Kitimba is however optimistic that the project will be completed in August 2018

Abdul Hakim Kalinaki, the UNRA Land Survey Officer says that they have so far spent 7.3 billion Shillings out of the approved 8.8 billion Shillings for compensating the affected people. The whole project is valued at 63.3 billion Shillings, covering the cost of compensation, supervision and other activities.
