There was drama in Oyam district on Wednesday after the minister for Presidency refused to commission a school building that was constructed at Achaba Technical School through President Yoweri Museveni’s pledge.
Esther Mbayo refused to commission the building that houses a multi-purpose hall, offices and school library the school building citing shoddy works.
She had been invited by Oyam district authorities to commission the building.
Upon inspection of the school, the minister found the building poorly constructed and said she would constitute a commission of inquiry into the contractor.
President Museveni is said to have visited the school on May 5th 1999, and found the community who had just returned from the Internally Displaced People’s camp–following LRA rebel activities-struggling to put up the building when he pledged to support them with the completion of the building.
A budget was submitted to him and in the financial year 2011/2012, he gave out Shs213m to complete the work.
