Councillors of Nansana Municipality on Tuesday stormed the office of the Town Clerk Ambrose Atwoko.

The angry councillors carrying placards called for the transfer of the Atwoko who has spent one year in the office. They accused him of among other issues misappropriating finances and incompetence.  

Led by the municipal speaker Moses Kalungi, the councillors claim that Atwoko has several times acted contrary to the decisions of the council which has led to poor service delivery.

Atwoko who had locked himself inside his office was rescued by the police who took him out through the back door to a waiting car. However, when the councillors noticed he was fleeing, they tried to pull him out of the car in vain.

Balinnya Kivumbi, councillor representing Gombe division, observes that they had allocated over 380 million shillings for the physical planning of Busukuma and Gombe Divisions to control development of slum but up-to-date nothing has taken place.

Kivumbi also questions the 120 million shillings which has been spent on planting grass along Hoima road saying the figures might have been inflated.

Cue out…abalodebwa abantu.”//  

Grace Natege claims that the Town Clerk has been conniving with the Mayor Regina Bakitte to swindle taxpayers’ money. She alleges that much of the funds are diverted to foreign trips.

Natege also alleges that they have information indicating that last year the Mayor and other two individuals used over 18.5 million shillings each on a two-day visit in Rwanda.

Cue out…enough is enough.”//  

However, Bakitte refuted the claims saying that the politicians are influencing some technocrats to tarnish her name.   

//Cue in “kati bakozesa omusimbi …

Cue out…minister natambula.”//
