Bravo Land and Construction Company is in trouble for allegedly executing shoddy work in Wakiso District. 

District authorities have ordered the company to demolish and rebuild five stance pit latrines at St. Thereza Bakka and Kabagezi primary schools in Namayumba Sub County.  Construction of the pit latrines, valued at 21 million shillings, started last year.

However, the district education committee members chaired by Tom Muwonge are dissatisfied with the quality of work executed so far after an onsite inspection exercise.

Muwonge says that at both sites, the contractor used poorly baked bricks and poor quality timber contrary to what was agreed in the bills of quantities.

The District Education Officer, Fredrick Kiyingi Kinobe, says that the contractor has been directed to demolish pit latrines. He adds that the contractor will meet the cost of redoing the works.

Muwonge says that the sub-standard work not only exposes the lives of the pupils to danger but also the district to financial losses.

//Cue in: "The work that... 

 Cue out:.. for a good time.”//

 Namugga Sarah Kasule, the councillor representing both Namayumba town council and Namayumba Sub County to Wakiso district council, attributes the shoddy work to lack of inspection and supervision by the district engineering department.
