    The Uganda Government seeks World Bank support to extend USMID Program.

    The government has formally approached the World Bank requesting an extension of funding for projects under the Uganda Support for Municipal Infrastructure Development (USMID) program.

    This request comes after Multiplex Construction Company Limited, the contractor responsible for works in Mbarara City, Ntungamo, and Kabale Municipalities, failed to complete the designated road construction within the agreed timeframe.

    An inspection conducted by USMID officials revealed that roads awarded to Multiplex Construction Company Limited, including Bwankosa Road (0.76 kilometers), Bushekwire Road (0.34 kilometers), and a road connecting Kabale Diocesan Headquarters to the Katuna-Kabale-Mbarara Highway (2.47 kilometers), are only at 53 percent completion.

    The scheduled completion of the sh21.722 billion roads project within one year has not been met, despite contract extensions.
