Meeting with the Executive Director, Rural electrification agency (REA) to answer audit queries for the years 2010/11
Discussed in the Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Entreprises on March 13th, 2015
The executive director Godfrey Turyahikayo met the committee with his deputy Mr Godrey Werikhe to answer audit queries for the years 2010/11. Honourable Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda chaired the meeting.
The major query in the year was uncompleted projects by the agency. It was noted that two projects in Namutumba and Kamuli and in Hoima and Nakasongola were not completed and lagging and behind schedule for 7 and 3 months respectively. Both projects were carried out by a Ugandan company called Omega Construction Company and money had been paid by the agency for building network lines. In addition the contract between omega and REA stated that the company pays 0.05% for each day the project delayed, however no money was paid.
