EDITOR â€”I donâ€™t know who is fooling Ugandans. Is it Kampala City Council (KCC) or Zzimwe Construction? According to KCC, pothole fixing in the city was awarded to Zzimwe and the dates for completion of the work published. But we do not know who is supervising Zzimwe.
Is it Kakooza Mutale or the resident district commissioner of Kampala? Zzimwe digs up roads, making the holes deeper and worse than they were before. Zzimwe does not care about the dangers this causes to cars. The most annoying thing is that they take forever to fill the holes. Take the case of Bombo Road from Watoto Church Central to Wandegeya and Mukwano Road, among others.
These roads were dug about a month ago and Zzimwe has never cared to fill them up! Then there are those roads that were dug up last year on Kyaggwe Road at Misseka market and at the Kayunga Road â€” Tufnell Drive junction. The most puzzling was the Old Taxi Park deal where kcc and Zzimwe agreed on a sh500m contract.
But as construction was going on, Zzimwe asked for more money. What happened to the road equipment China gave KCC?
