Lawrence Aliga, the Municipal Deputy Mayor blamed Ahabwe for failing
to throw out Saving Grace Limited, a private company from managing Coronation
Park, a public open space to pave way for the upgrade.
Aliga is worried that the delay to remove the company could
interfere with the implementation of the World Bank-funded USMID Project.
Jonal Okot, the youth councillor Ojwina Division, says that transferring
Ahabwe could delay the implementation of USMID projects.

instead asked them to be patient and follow the laws.
