Francis Winnyi, a Councillor representing Mazinga Parish to Buwunga sub-county says that the absence of staff quarters at Mazinga government health Centre; the only facility in their area, has rendered health workers inefficient because patients cannot be attended to in time.
Mbabali argues that the current municipal council lacks physical planning structure for a city, arguing that at the moment the responsibility is vested in the district leadership until a substantive structure is fully constituted. He says they will soon call for a stakeholder’s meeting to brief them about their position.
Paul Kangave the Greater Masaka Regional Police spokesperson says that majority of the lower local leaders in the area are failing to execute their mandates of managing simple conflicts through their local council courts.
The Masaka LC V Chairperson, Jude Mbabali openly clashed with the Mayor Godfrey Kayemba over the boundaries of the proposed city. It all started after Mbabali claimed that they had unanimously resolved to have the entire Masaka district converted into a city.
