Parliament could be closed for failure to meet safety standards

13 April 2015, 11:46 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - As Uganda government threatens to close all buildings and factories that do not meet the occupation safety standards, it has emerged that the Parliament could also fall in that category.

After the closure, the owners and proprietors of such buildings and factories will be arrested and prosecuted.

This has been disclosed by the Permanent Secretary Ministry of gender, labour and social development, Pius Bigirimana.

Bigirimana said, ''The operation to close the buildings and factories that do not meet minimum occupation safety standards will begin in two weeks’ time.''

He said that the Ministry had already got police officers and prosecutor to enforce occupation safety standards, which he claims lack in many factories and buildings in the country.

He shocked MPs when he said that Parliament is among buildings that do not adhere to safety standards.

The Minister noted that despite all efforts by the government to create awareness on the need to comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Act, some stubborn enterprises, companies, organisations have adamantly refused to comply.

Hundreds of building in Kampala and other parts of the country do not do not meet minimum safety standards and after the announcement, most of the owners are now panicking.
