Hoima District | THE BLACK EXAMINER | The Inspector General of Government (IGG) has expressed deep concern regarding the prolonged construction progress of Kabaleega International Airport in Hoima District.

While on a tour of the oil and gas operational regions within the Albertine Graben, Ms. Betti Olive Namisango Kamya highlighted the substantial delay in completing the airport, emphasizing the need for increased efforts to ensure its timely completion. She stressed that expediting the airport’s construction is imperative to facilitate and accelerate oil production, which will significantly contribute to Uganda’s economy.

Ms. Kamya underscored the urgency of the situation by pointing out that crucial components essential for the airport’s operation are lagging behind schedule, a fact confirmed by updates provided by the project contractor.

During a recent field visit organized by the Petroleum Authority of Uganda (PAU), SBC Uganda Limited, the construction contractor, disclosed that the completion rate stands at 94 percent, with the handover scheduled for the end of October 2023.

The PAU acknowledges that the IGG’s intervention has further highlighted the significance of rigorous oversight, responsible regulation, and the timely completion of vital projects within Uganda’s oil and gas sector.
