MWANZA. The construction of Usagara-Kisesa road has been suspended following the delay by the ministry of Works to compensate the villagers who are supposed to vacate their land for the project.

It is understood that apart from the compensation the ministry had also not paid the contractor, Nyanza Road Works, more than Sh3.8 billion for the completed construction work due to financial constraints.

Out of Sh922.8  million that the ministry was supposed to compensate the villagers only Sh133 million was paid while the contractor had only been paid Sh173 million out of Sh4 billion after completing the construction of 8 kilometres.
