In 2018, Museveni laid a foundation stone for the construction of Buhinga stadium in Fort Portal. The Uganda People’s Defense Forces – UPDF Engineering Brigade started the construction of the perimeter wall in 2019 and completed it in July this year. However, the construction of the second phase is yet to begin.
Last year, a private firm, KPMG released a report on the performance of the municipalities. However, during the assessment, it was discovered that Fort Portal lacked a substantive engineer, and was instead using the services of Kabarole District Engineer, Steven Wakatama.
