The Speaker of Parliament, Hon. Rebecca Kadaga who received the complex from Seyani and Brothers Construction Company on behalf of the Parliamentary Commission, on Thursday, applauded government for providing the funds for the project.

“It has been a very difficult time for the MPs and staff of Parliament. Over the last two and a half years, MPs have had to arrive at Parliament earlier than usual to compete for the limited parking space, while staff have had to park on the streets. With this new facility, this has been resolved,”she said.


Kadaga said Parliament had set an example for other government and private agencies to emulate, so as to both ease parking and decongest the city.

She further announced that each of the legislators will have a designated parking space reserved using the name of one’s constituency.

Works State Minister Hon. John Byabagambi expressed delight at the complex and advised Ugandan contractors to build their capacity so as to be in position to handle such complex projects.

He confirmed that government had initiated plans to streamline the construction industry so as to improve quality of buildings in the country.

The Lead Consultant, Henry Ssentoogo from Sentoogo and Partners, commended the Parliamentary Commission for successfully executing the project, which is Phase One of the Expansion of the Parliament Chamber.

He also commended the Ministry of Works, Seyani and Brothers Uganda Limited and the Sergeant-At-Arms who was the Contract Manager, for their professionalism during the construction process. He said the facility is now ready for use.

The colourful ceremony was attended by the Third Deputy Prime Minister Moses Ali, Ministers, Parliamentary Commissioners, Legislators, officials from the Ministry of Works and Transport, representatives of the Contractors and Consultants, Management and staff of Parliament among others.
