Fort Portal municipality has lost Uganda shillings 10 million in repairing a vehicle that has still failed to move.

According to a Councillor who preferred to remain anonymous, they have learnt that UGX10 million was used to repair a red double cabin vehicle registration number LG 0704R.

Although repairs were done, the vehicle is still parked at the offices and not moving. 

The Councillor said the double-cabin was last month taken to Kampala where its engine and other parts were repaired. But it is shocking when it was brought back about three weeks ago and it is still not moving.  

He says they will table the issue the next time council sits and demand for an explanation from the mayor Rev Willy Kintu Muhanga and Town Clerk Deo Ndimo.  

But the speaker of the municipal council Gilbert Kayondo says there are several other vehicles where millions of money have been spent and they remain in the same mechanical conditions.

Cue out…it is there down.”//

For his part Mayor Muhanga says he is unaware that UGX10 million was spent on the vehicle. Muhanga adds that even though he is not sure of the total sum of money that was spend on the vehicle, he is aware that UGX5 million was used to repair the engine.

Asked why the repaired vehicle is not moving, Rev Muhanga argues that as an executive, they are also looking for answers from the people who repaired it.

//Cue in: “I'm not in… Cue out…or 10 million.”//

But when contacted, Ndimo said he is away from town and preferred to give an appropriate comment after returning and reading through some documents. Mayor Muhanga says the double cabin is supposed to be used by the law enforcement team.  

For now, the vehicle is still parked at the municipal offices in Boma, Fort Portal.
