Construction of a state-of-the-art Kisekka market will soon commence.
An official at the site who sought to remain anonymous told Eagle Online that the proposed seven storey complex will cost about Shs62 billion.
He said that currently construction works were at the leveling stage, which will take about two weeks to complete.
‘After the leveling works, the contractors will start construction of their offices and finally construction will begin,’ said the official.
He disclosed that the contractor asked for 25 percent before commencing works and that efforts are underway to settle the costs.
“We are working on getting that,” he added.
During the first phase, he said, four floors will be erected and prices for the stalls therein will range from Shs9 million and Shs45 million, depending on size.
Located in downtown Kampala, Kisekka market was demolished in December last year amid riots by the vendors who were evicted to pave way for the reconstruction.
Many other controversies surround the market reconstruction exercise and early this year the management of the market reportedly disregarded a court injunction.
However, now the market management says the works will proceed since they won the court case.
