By Nathan Etengu KATAKWI district leaders are still reeling over a report of sub-standard structures built under the central government-funded Classroom Construction Grant and the School Facilitation Grant. The report by a team of officials from the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Education, said some of the schools built by Amuria Farmers and Transporters were a risk to the lives of the pupils and should be demolished. The team sampled 12 classroom blocks and said some of the structures had their roofs caving in while others had their doorframes eaten up by termites. Amuria was reported to have used sub-standard materials like un-seasoned timber and sand mixed with dirt. The team said the district tender board had continued to award contracts to firms that continuously delivered sub-standard work. But the district council chairman, Stephen Ilemukorit, said the report had lost the goal of quality control in Katakwi and had instead become more of a political witch-hunt. Ends
