The opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has urged the government allocate more funds to Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) to save life of Ugandans that die and get disease such as cancer because of fake materials imported in the country.
The Deputy spokesperson Of Forum for Democratic change(FDC) Paul Mwiru while addressing journalists at party headquarters Najjanankumbi today said that UNBS doesn’t have good laboratories to check goods that imported in the country.
Mwiru adds that fake materials cost Ugandans much because they are not long lasting which he says affects economic growth in the country.
This followed the building that collapsed at Buziga Munyonyo and left unknown people trapped due to fake building materials.
He calls upon Parliament to fulfill the 480 billion asked by UNBS to construct labs than giving them 6 billion that was a located to them in the next 2018/19 financial budget.
