New Shs36b MPs’ parking area floods

Authorities in Parliament were embarrassed last week after they were forced to temporarily close the new parking lot for two days after the whole area flooded.

The facility leaked and the whole area was flooded as the first season rains poured on Kampala.

resident Museveni on November 8 last year opened the new “state-of the-art” multi-level parking lot at Parliament. The five level parking complex, which cost Shs36 billion, can accommodate 510 cars and is fitted with lifts, fire-fighting equipment and an air extractor. The car park was Phase I of the expansion of the Parliament Chamber project.

However, last week’s floods upset legislators and staff who have now questioned the durability of the facility.

arliament cleaners were immediately dispatched to the South Wing to shove water using buckets and rags. In the chaos, the contractor, Ms Seyani and Brothers Limited, was called to come and fix the problem.

The parking was re-opened on Tuesday. During the days of closure, very unhappy legislators struggled to find parking space in the vicinity of Parliament.
