By The Citizen Staff writer

The completion schedule of a project to rehabilitate Mwanza Airport has been interrupted due to government failure to deliver funds to the contractor in time.
This is the second project in Mwanza Region to be disrupted due to financial problems after the construction of Usagara-Kisesa road stopped following a delay by the ministry of Works to compensate villagers who were supposed to be evacuated to pave the way for its expansion.

It was reported that apart from failing to compensate the villagers, the ministry was yet to pay the road contractor, Nyanza Road Works, some Sh4 billion for the completed part of the project.
