BUSIA district local government has blacklisted seven contractors and suppliers for failing to accomplish projects in the area.

The firms were contracted by the district to supply furniture to primary schools, rehabilitating of community access roads and construction of classroom blocks and health staff houses.

The blacklisted firms were Standard Building and Contractors, One by One, Asa Contractors, Exxon Contractors, Beat Logistic (U), Vigor Investment and Gummo Enterprises.

The district LC5 vice-chairman and secretary for finance and administration, Charles Malowa Kudedi, said the firms had more than three contracts.

Kudedi told New Vision that despite the availability of resources at the district, the suppliers and contractors failed to finish their projects.

“They don’t have the capacity to meet their obligations,” Kudedi said, adding that the list of the blacklisted firms had been sent to the procurement unit for the termination of the contracts.

He said being blacklisted meant that the affected firms would not be in position to be awarded contracts for a period of three years until their capacity has been assessed again and found to be suitable.

All the contracts fall under the district livelihood support programme.
