  1. There is no scam as the writer claims. The Mbale issues were technical in nature and have been solved by the engineering team.

    1. Dennis, whether technical or otherwise, at least i hope we can agree that the whole Mbale town road deal would have been handled in a much better way. By definition of the word scam, it is difficult to believe that no parties in the deal were being dishonest & tricky with an intent to fraudulently benefit. It is public knowledge how over 99% of the tenders are handled here in Uganda and it is also public knowledge how many companies do shoddy work for one reason or another. In the end, what we really need is the work to go on and have the dusty roads watered to keep the dust down while at it. I was in Mbale 4 days ago and i noticed that work on some stretches had resumed and sections of the dusty roads were being watered. I hope this is kept up!
