Museveni orders suspension of Karuma and Isimba dam officers over lousy works

The President of the Republic of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has ordered the immediate suspension and investigation of officers who have been leading the projects of the contrucion of Karuma and Isimba dams on River Nile.
The suspended officers include Eng. Paul Mubiru who has been the director of energy resources, Eng. Henry Bidasala, the Project coordinator Karuma Dam and Ms Menva Cecilia who is also the project coordinator Isimba Dam. The three will be investigated and charged with neglect of duty.
The president also warned the contractors on the ongoing project and ordered them to fix all faulty works in the shortest time possible.
Isimba Dam and Karuma Dam are expected to produce over 2000 GW of power every year when completed which will solve the load shedding problem that has affected Ugandans since 2006.
Below is the statement from the President of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni
As you might be aware, I wrote to the Energy Minister a few weeks back directing that she investigates reports of shoddy work on Karuma and Isimba dams that are under construction. As a follow up, I have ordered for the immediate suspension and investigation of the following officers over neglect of duty; Eng. Paul Mubiru, the director energy resources, Eng. Henry Bidasala, the project coordinator Karuma, and Ms. Cecilia Menva, the project coordinator Isimba dam. The project contractors have been issued with a stern warning and all faults on the works must be fixed
