Minister Blocks Implementation of Kiboga Council Resolutions

Local Government Minister Blocks Implementation of Kiboga Council Resolutions
Adolf Mwesigye, minister of Local government has blocked the implementation of all resolutions passed by Kiboga district council over the past five months.


In his April 26th letter, Mwesigye says that the resolutions are unlawful because Siraje Nkungwa Kizito the then LC V chairman, some members of his executive and district council had lost legitimacy to expedite their duties.


Early this month, Nkugwa together with three other councilors were evicted from office for contesting as independents yet they were elected into office as NRM candidates in the 2006 election.


In his letter addressed to Kiboga chief administrative officer, Mwesigye says that the implementation of all the resolutions passed from the time Nkungwa was nominated as an independent candidate to the time he was evicted should be halted immediately.


The resolutions include the renewal of the term of office of members of district service commission, hiring of Mubende district service commission to conduct interviews and award jobs in Kiboga district civil service, renewal of the District land board among others.


Mwesigye says that he has reliably established that the outcome of the elections influenced the way some of the decisions were reached.


He singles out Rose Ssenkumbi, who contested for Kiboga District Woman MP seat on the FDC ticket and lost election before being appointed a member of the district service commission.

Mwesigye says that by law active politicians are barred from being appointed to the district service commission. Musisi Kambugu, acting Kiboga District LC V chairman says that move is a disaster to the district.


He describes the development as a disaster to the development of the district.


Musisi blames the incoming LCV chairperson Yiga Israel for masterminding the move to undermine their little contribution to the Kiboga district.

Yiga has dismissed the claims by Musisi saying that as a member of the district council for the past five years he warned council about these mistakes but no body listened to him.
