The university principal sports tutor Peninah Kabenge disclosed this to New Vision online in an interview on Wednesday.

The ultra-modern multi-purpose indoor sports facility at Makerere University is expected to be ready for use by August.

"The information I can give you is that the facility is expected to be completed by August and I am convinced that shall be in a position to host the U-20 Africa Women Volleyball Championship due in September," Kabenge said.

The facility valued at sh5.57bn was meant to include wash-rooms, parking, and office space, but work stalled after hosting the third edition of the FISU World University Netball Championships before completion in September 2018.

The facility which originally had a 3,000 seating capacity is being expanded to 5,000 and the UPDF engineering brigade is currently roofing it after installing the insulations to avoid linking during rain.

Kabenge explained that work should have been completed, but that the contractors had other projects they were working on.

"I cannot give the actual period in which work will be completed, but what I can tell is that the ongoing work will be done by August, according to those officials on the site," Kabenge added.

When we visited the site, roofing nearly complete, which gives hope that the deadline will be met.
