Chinese company takes over Ugandan Stadium

by James Ateenyi

Government will now contract a Chinese company to construct Akii-Bua Olympic stadium in Lira.

Lands minister Betty Amongi says the president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has decided that the funds for the construction of Akii-Bua stadium will no longer be channeled through Lira district local government.

At least over shillings 400m was injected in the project but only a small terrace cum pavilion and a toilet was erected by Lira district.

This prompted Ajuri county MP Denis Obua to raise a red flag that later saw the committee on commissions, statutory Authorities and state enterprises -COSASE probe Lira district officials.

The government accuses the district leaders of frustrating the government programs hence opting for alternative that will ensure the stadium is completed.
