The ONC Coordinator Rwenzori subregion Mr.Kyalimpa Ausen together with the Bundibugyo district ONC Coordinator Mr. Baligya Juma and the sub-county chairman for Bundingoma, Mr Ntura Vicent yesterday monitored the construction of the Bubandi-Bundingoma road where they discovered several concavities. The team discovered that;

1. Shoddy works seen on the road

2. The culverts used on the road are broken even before the official handover and completion of the road.

3. No murram was put on the road which the community believes will see the road perishing in just a month.

4. The arc bridge on River Rutobo has had its construction stalled after failure to pay the contractor M/S Riyan Construction Company Limited and has since abandoned the site.
