Construction work on the three roads in Kabale Municipality under the Uganda Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development-USMID project on Tuesday was interrupted after 40 workers of Stone Construction Company Limited in Kabale district laid down their tools to protest poor working conditions and maltreatment.

Stone Construction Company Limited was contracted to tarmac three feeder roads; Nyerere Road, advice Nyerere Avenue and Kigongi Road in April this year at Shs.13 billion.

But On Tuesday, the workers stormed the office of the Mayor Kabale Municipality Emmanuel Sentaro Byamugisha to report the company managers why they accuse of overworking them, cutting their pay and not paying attention to their health.
