The excavation and building works that will kick off today Friday at 10pm will take place between Electoral Commission Head offices and Centenary Park.

“Government of Uganda is building new sewer lines for the growing population of Kampala City. NWSC has accordingly contracted Sogea Satom to excavate and lay sewer lines along Jinja road between Electoral commission and Centenary Park from 9th November, 2018 for a period of 21 days,” said NWSC in a statement.
