BUSHENYI LC5 chairperson Longino Ndyanabo has ordered the arrest of contractors who produce shoddy work.
He was speaking at a district Council meeting recently. He said people who award tenders should aim at quality work.
â€œI am disturbed by the shoddy work. We must have quality structures,â€ he said, adding, â€œContractors who do shoddy work should be blacklisted and should not be paid. They should be arrested and imprisoned,â€ he said.
Council members had complained of substandard structures.
They questioned how contractors won tenders and built sub-standard structures without the tender board and the supervisors noticing it. Councillors said new school buildings had collapsed before officially being handed to the district by the contractors.
The councillors said contractors who do shoddy work should be arrested, and the buildings demolished at their cost.
The coucillors said the district had lost a lot of money through shoddy work on buildings by fake contractors.
