Kisoro district councilors have unanimously approved the nomination of Alex Nambajimana, as the district LC5 Vice-Chairperson.  

A section of councilors had on July 26, this year rejected the nomination of Nambajimana citing the mismatch of names on his academic documents.

They argued that Nambajimana’s Primary Leaving Examination certificate (PLE) bears the name of Nambajimana Alex B, Ordinary Level certificate bears Nambajimana  B. Alex, and Tertiary Institution and University certificate bears Nambajimana B. Alex.

They also accused him of being corrupt by illegally using district land to host his organization Kisoro Concern for Marginalized People Organization. The councilors also rejected the nomination of John Muftimukiza, as the District Health Secretary accusing him of being dull and unable to express himself in the public.

This sparked chaos in the council which led Abel Bizimana, the district chairman to almost fight with a section of councilors led by James Agaba, the representative of the Southern Division, and the elderly male councilor, Phillip Ntakyotugyira.  

But on Monday, Amos Hakizimana, District Speaker gave Bizimana a fresh chance of presenting names of other people to fill the gaps of the two seats.  Bizimana again presented Nambajimana as the district vice-chairperson. 

Bizimana explains that Nambajimana made all the necessary steps to prove that all his names are valid by swearing court affidavits and registering with Uganda Registration Services Bureau. Hakizimana also told the council that he has scrutinized all Nambajimana’s academic documents and is this qualifies him to be nominated. All councilors agreed with Bizimana and Hakizimana to have Nambajimana nominated. 

Nambajimana was also nominated as secretary for Health Committee replacing Muftimukiza whom councilors had rejected in July. Doreen Dusabe, the female councilor representing Chahi sub-county and Chanika town council was also nominated as the Secretary for production and marketing.  

Bizimana also made a surprise in the council when he announced Muftimukiza as his special envoy on the Works department Committee arguing that since he is always busy, Muftimukiza will take the responsibility of attending all works Sectoral committees and other meetings.     

After nomination, Nambajimana says it is now time to prove to councilors and other people of Kisoro that he has the capacity to serve towards development.
