AMUDAT: The newly constructed police station at Alakas border post in Amudat district has remained idle without the contractor handing it over to the police.

The development was after the concerned residents of the area who are supposed to be the beneficiaries of the station rejected the facility due to over widening cracks around  the building wall and the verandah.

Now the locals are calling for thorough investigations into the workmanship of facilities which was funded under Development Initiative for Northern Uganda (DINU) with the findings from European Union.

The facilities were constructed by Santur business link limited based in Amudat district.

A visit by this website at the police station also noted unbelievable cracks from the building which include five unit for the officers houses and police station which is at the cost of Shs700m. This website noted that the doors at the toilets are no longer closing and some doors from the police quarters are also failing to be closed.

William Chepar one of the concerned residents in the area says they will not be part of the community witnessing the hand over of the police station with such cracks in place.

“I know we are not educated but our houses that we build out of mad are better than this constructed scientifically,”he said.

According to Mr. Chepar, if police goes a head and receive such cracked buildings, then they will not be part of patriotism. Marry Cheruto another concerned resident says the cracks alone have widened especially inside the police counter, staff verandah and the latrines.


This web site has learnt that the resident district commissioner Amudat Rtd Major Betty Akello  who was supposed to receive the buildings  has since jumped off dodging to answer questions as to why she didn’t decline to receive such a building.

Aruna Santur the contractor however blamed the cracks on the scorching sunshine.

” This soil has a problem in fact we did a lot of curing of those building but the sunshine is very hot,”he said.
