Local construction firm, Abubaker Technical Services and General Supplies Limited (ATSGSL) has asked the public to disregard a video circulating online that’s aimed at denting the company’s image.
Speaking to this website, ATSGSL bosses told us these are unfortunate works of people aimed at failing the company.
The contractor maintains it is not responsible for the damage made by those digging a trench, and further assures the public to treat with contempt the video circulating on this platform, aiming at denting the company’s image.

We can confirm that the investigative bodies including the IGG cleared Abubaker Technical and also commended the quality work on the recently commissioned Road under Apac Municipal USMID project.
This after finding that the thickness of Asphalt concrete that was used was big enough.
The damage as captured in the video was done by those who were digging a trench. The report from investigations indicated that the contractor, Abubaker Technical Services, did not use murram but rather stone-base before adding tarmac. Stone-base is high quality.
Information we have gathered reveals that there were queries raised after the construction of this road and government dispatched investigative agencies including the IGG. This was between February and March this year.
Abubaker Technical was cleared of any shoddy work.
Over the years, the company has won major road contracts and delivered even beyond expectations.
Earlier this week, the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) entered into a contract with Abubaker Technical Services, an indigenous company, to rehabilitate the 41 kilometre Matugga – Semuto – Kapeeka road.
The contract is worth Shs217 billion.The construction is scheduled to commence in August this year and is expected to be completed within 24 months.
During the contract signing, the Minister for Works and Transport, Gen. Katumba Wamala, emphasized the importance of delivering high-quality work and warned against any potential risks associated with substandard construction.
For over years, such road projects have always been given to foreign companies with Chinese firms dominating. But thankfully, a local firm has been awarded such a contract and it’s quality works will be there for all to see.
