Presidency needs Shs12 billion to Renovate State House, state Lodges


NEWS-The office of the President has requested for Shs12.33 billion to renovate the Entebbe state house and 23 other up-country state lodges.

The request was made by the state minister for economic monitoring in the president’s office Peter Ogwang while presenting the State House policy statement for the financial year 2022/2023 before parliamentary committee.

Speaking to the Presidential Affairs Committee of Parliament this afternoon, Minister Ogwang explained that since it was constructed in 2007, the State House in Entebbe has had no major rehabilitation works and needs a retouch.

However, the committee has instead advised the statehouse to increase its budget for the presidential initiative on model villages saying the Shs 2 billion allocated is insufficient and has had little impact.
