Local leaders in the area have pointed the finger at the contractors blaming them for shoddy work. However, both the contractors and the Ibanda district engineer have blamed the collapse of the building on heavy rains.

The police have since initiated an investigation to find out the main cause of the incident.

A section of Ugandans online bashed the contractors accusing them of not doing a quality job as equal to the amount of money paid.
