KCCA, contractor differ on Nakivubo

Ham enterprises limited has defied Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) directive to stop the construction of lock-up shops in place of a perimeter wall they had agreed on around Nakivubo Stadium.

The company is said to have entered an unscrupulous public private partnership with the stadium management and have instead resorted to constructing lock-up shops along the area where fire has gutted twice in the last three years

KCCA public and corporate affairs deputy director, George N. Ndahendekire said the authority gave a notice directing Ham Enterprises Ltd to halt the construction for flouting a given plan.

We have learnt that during the day, there is no construction but the company carries on with construction at night which is against the notice. Our teams will issue them a second notice and monitor their subsequent actions, Mr Ndahendekire said.

However, Mr Abdul Musoke, a senior official with Ham enterprise, denied receipt of any notice.
“I don’t understand what you are talking about. Ham is only a contractor. Contact Nakivubo management for details,” he said in an interview yesterday.

Ms Hajat Minsa Kabanda, the secretary to the Nakivubo stadium management committee, who sounded surprised, said: “I’m not sure about the night construction, I didn’t know about that. But why don’t you talk to Ham enterprises that are in charge?”

But when engaged further on the issue, she said denied receipt of any notice and instead said they had informed KCCA and the Kampala minister about the proposed construction.
