The Prime Minister of Uganda, Robinah Nabbanja will inspect the National High-Performance Centre, Teryet tomorrow.
Alfred Tunde the Kapchorwa district sports officer confirmed the development before revealing that preparations were on ahead of the visit.
“She will inspect the facility and later guide the stakeholders accordingly. The Prime Minister will sum up her fact-finding mission thereby planting some trees in and around the facility,” Tunde told Vision Sports.
Impressed by the dazzling acts by athletes, President Yoweri Museveni asked for the construction of the Teryet High Altitude Training Centre in 2012.
The construction company COMPLAINT won the bid to construct the facility but claims that Covid-19 strains caused the delay.
The contractor was expected to deliver the sh4b project within four years and nine years later, the project is yet to be completed.
Late last year, the state Minister for Sports Benson Obua concluded that the contractor is given up to February 2022 to complete but that too seems farfetched going by the works on the ground.
“Honestly speaking, we are close but not close enough to beat the February deadline. Some consideration will have to be undertaken,” Tunde revealed.
It remains to be seen what the tough speaking Prime Minister will conclude upon her fact-finding mission on Friday, this week.
