Mongouge Multipurpose Centre stalled
Bousquet told residents of Mongouge that he was building a state-of-the art multipurpose center costing $650,000 for them. A few months have elapsed since the project started and little is happening. We understand the project is now being audited for seeming irregularities, including the diversion of funds to campaign projects. We also understand that the residents of the Mongouge area in response are planning to write a letter to the SSDF as well as the Ministry of Social Transformation, Youth and Sports and the media highlighting their concerns about the naked irregularities associated with the project, undertaken on behalf of the district rep.

Bousquet trots up and down the constituency touting that he is a money man; then, why can’t he use some of this money to complete the project? If he claims he has the youth at heart, then why are monies allocated for the Mongouge project being diverted to undertake campaign projects on his behalf?

Meanwhile, the executing agency SSDF has been sitting idly by without ensuring that basic project implementing procedures are observed. Where is the project officer assigned to the project? Where is the “projection identification” signboard giving information about the executing and implementation agencies, cost, contractor and funding agency etc for the project? Why are there no transparency and accountability?

Will this project remain as unfinished business to be undertaken by Lorne?
