Editor,

I read with shock a story from The Newtimes yesterday about a parliamentary inquiry into the alleged irregularities in the recent rehabilitation of the Parliamentary Buildings.

The probe report suggests that the contracted companies could have installed substandard surveillance security cameras.

Lawmakers have constitutional obligations to put people to task to explain how public funds have been used.

Though it’s not yet time to apportion blame, the truth must come out.

The contractors, Thomas and Piron, and Fair Construction, which jointly subcontracted Sekanyolya Systems Rwanda to set up a full-system of surveillance cameras, should explain what went wrong.

It does not make sense for the contractors to keep insisting that the work was done according to their respective contracts.

There must be a problem because I don’t think the parliament is making up a case against them without facts.

I always read The Newtimes and I believe what they reported on the alleged substandard work at parliament is true and backed by documents.

I have also heard several MPs complaining about shoddy work at parliament  privately. I think it’s  high time we got to the root cause of the problem.
