FRANCISTOWN: Construction of the Makwala Sports Complex has stalled owing to a dispute between the Tutume Sub-District Council and one of the project contractors.

This week the Sub-District Council Secretary, Milton Keitshokile said the source of the dispute is that one of the contractors, Cressiando (Pty) Ltd has submitted a proposal for an increase in the initial budget.

We are still assessing his proposal for an increase in money allocated to the project.
