Omoro Traders Tell Minister To Commission Incomplete Market

OMORO: A section of traders in Omoro district have requested the minister of Local government to go ahead and commission the newly constructed market to save them from continued loses.
On Thursday Raphael Magyezi the minister of local government  declined to commission a multi-million newly constructed market in Omoro District citing some areas which were not completed yet. He was  invited along with the State Minister for Northern Uganda Rehabilitation Grace Freedom Kwiyucwyiny by Omoro district leaders to preside over the commissioning of Lela-obaro Market in Bobi Sub-county.
The new market which was constructed in three phases using different construction companies at the cost of Shs700 million was funded by the Development Initiative for Northern Uganda using  funding from the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF).
The two ministers toured the newly constructed facility, but  found out that some of the structures hadn’t been fully completed by two other contractors although  the 3rd contractor  Civo Construction Services Ltd had completed his part of building wall fence and solared power borehole.
Anna Awili one of the traders said the two ministers should accept and commission the market so that the traders start using it to minimize traders from counting loses.
“Those areas can be completed as we traders are using the facility because we need to generate income, our children are supposed to report back to school yet it’s only in this market where we hope to generate income,”She said.
Peter Oketayot another trader said since the district still holds Shs15m that money can be used to complete the remaining part as traders are using the market. Mr. Donath Eswilu, the Omoro District Chief Administrative Officer assured the Ministers that the remaining scope of work will be undertaken in one and half weeks.

This publication has learnt that the sub-county projected to earn between 1.2 million shillings and 1.5 million shillings per month as revenue from the market.
