The state minister for Works and Transport, Aggrey Bagire has said insecurity is the main reason why Gulu-Kenya highway road work has delayed.

Many construction companies have declined the offer fearing that Karamoja, Gulu region is not safe basing on the past LRA war which left many people homeless as well as losing their lives.

Constructors still think the place is not safe.

“When you advertise for the construction job, construction companies say they are not sure whether Karamoja,Gulu is safe so they end up declining the offer,” said Bagire.

However, Bagire promised contractors willing to take up the job that the ministry of defence is to provide the necessary security needed when the construction takes underway.
