This publication saw the paper work which indicated that the money was spent on one and half kilometer road yet the actual  sense the work was only done at 800 meters.
James Omagor one of the anti corruption monitors told this publication that where areas the road was supposed to have covered drainage system and the pedestrian walk way which is not there.
“Soroti city is rotten, and we appeal the office of the president to come for our rescue if they love Soroti city,”he said.
Glades Aketch another resident said many people in Soroti have not tested the value of Soroti being a city at all adding that the officers employed in the city are  only after their stomachs.

But Mr.Robert Kairu the city engineer  said they have only spent Shs900m on the road adding that the work was still in progress.
“The truths is that we have only spent Shs900m todo that work which is beyond even low cost sealing and work is not yet complete-“he said.
