Iganga municipality has accumulated debts worth 600 million Shillings resulting from the loss of several court suits. Most of the cases are related to land matters. The local leaders say the municipality lost so much land to grabbers with the connivance of some of officials.

 

 

The Mayor, David Balaba, says the debts accumulated between May and November this year. “It is shocking on how we have accumulated such a debt in less than a year. The question is, is this intentional by a group of people to dent our image as failures,” he wondered.

 

 

Balaba says the municipality is now challenged to find a source to raise the money to clear the debts. Patrick Kayemba, the LC V chairman notes that they intend to high a lawyer to guide the district.
