Surely this ,one of 4 projects , SHOULD have been the LAST to be started it is again a sign of the current self importance placed on municipal political power in Gambia of today where farming and infrastructure,health projects MUST take prescedence of political structures.

The National Assembly Select Committee on Regional Government, Land and Ombudsman and IEC has on Thursday visited the D109 million Rural Infrastructural Development Project of the Kanifing Municipal Council following their appearance on Wednesday at the Assembly Chambers in Banjul to answer series of questions raised by members, thus the Committee embarked on an oversight visit to ascertain the answers which the council provided.
Reiterating on the process of the project, Nyima Camara Director of planning and development KMC told members that the project is a delegated management contract which is between the councils and Gamworks.
While at the construction site of the Kanifing Municipal municipal town hall, Nyima disclosed that the new construction is one of the projects of KMC. She said it entail the office spaces for the council, meeting hall and chambers.
She alluded that the project is a ten month project which started in March 2019 and it has being going well as they have a good collaboration with Gamworks.
‘’We have four projects with Gamworks and the entire project cost is D109million on which the council is supposed to pay a counterpart contribution of 8.3% which is equivalent to 8.3 million. Which the council has paid for the ongoing project’’. She explained

Mr. Darboe the contractor asserted that unfortunately they have gone beyond the ten month agreement without completion. He said the contract was supposed to start in March but they didn’t start until around May even though the side was handed over but because of certain logistics they couldn’t proceed as agreed.
He disclosed that another factor which cause delay was rainfall. ‘’the foundation is very unusual compare to other buildings as each of the pillar base is 3.25 by 3.25 wide by 2miters deep when we dug that the rain came’’.
The tour party proceeded to the newly contracted Latri Kunda Sabigi market where they had a conducted tour of the project by the director of panning Nyima Camara, these new construction consist of 72 stalls and according to Nyima priority will be given to the former occupants.
Members of the committee later departed to the road construction site at Latri Kunda Where they meet with the contractors and Hon. Amusa Amul Nyassi Chairman of the committee raised concern over the drainage system, but he was assured by the contractor that the drainage system will be dealt with.
He challenged the council to review the final destination of the water. Honourable Nyassi said if they don’t capture the final destination of the water all their work will be in vain.

The Local Government Committee of the National Assembly has yesterday conducted a fact finding visit to the Kanifing Municipal Council and its development project sites.

The committee visited some of the projects implemented by the council, among them the Latrikunda Sabiji market, Latrikunda- Wellingara road and the Rural Infrastructural Development Project (RIDP) expansion building at the Bundung Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital.

The visit kicked off with a scrutiny of project documents at the council to ascertain the meetings, financial expenses and projects implemented by the council in response the council’s account during their engagement with the committee on Wednesday 23rdOctober 2019.

During a site visit to the KMC Town Hall Complex, the Director of Planning and development at KMC, Nyima Camara, told the committee that the construction of the Council’s town hall complex is a 10 month contract and comprises offices for the council.

Mr. Darboe, the contractor of the Appropriate Technology Construction (ATC) Company stated that the project of the council’s town hall is in the tune of D23 million, adding that the contract has suffered delay due to the late start of the contract coupled with rains that have caused the collapse of the 3.25 metre wide by 2 metre deep foundation pit which they dug for the complex and it has taken them 3 months to fix the damage.

He told the committee that they meet every fortnight to assess progress and challenges regarding the construction with a view to ensuring that the complex is complete without further delay.

Kebab Manneh, CEO of Bundung Maternal and Child Healthcare Hospital, indicated that the RIDP Expansion complex is meant to encourage the use of public facilities in their health service delivery system. The project is funded by the IDB and that KMC is the beneficiary.
Speaking earlier Musa Amul Nyass, Chairperson of the Committee, told KMC that the visit is to obtain first- hand information regarding the implementation of the projects of the council. He said as partners, they need to join hands together and make concerted efforts, so that development aspirations can be met.

He informed the council that the committee will prepare a report after the visit and present it at the plenary and once adopted, it will become a public document so that the people will know what really prevails at the councils.
