Police have summoned Bright Joga, the Town Clerk of Nyakyera town council in relation to allegations that he locked Ntungamo District administration block.

On January 15th, 2020, dozens Ntungamo District Local Government staff were stranded for several hours as the keys to the administration block couldn’t be traced.

Now, the Ntungamo District Police Commander, Demian Katwesiime, says they have summoned the town clerk and two others in connection to the incident. 

“We have summoned the town clerk of Nyakyera Town council and two others including his wife Dinnah Singahache to record statements on the accusations,” he said.  

 

According to Katwesiime, Joga, his wife and a one Kenneth are suspected to be behind the disappearance of the keys from the district block from the police station.

Cue out: …I confirm that.”//

Joga Bright is the son in law to Ntungamo District LC V chairperson, Denis Singahache. 

Katwesiime however, says the case of the trio isn’t related to the pepper spraying of the District Speaker on the same day.

Cue out: …kuchinga district egyo.”//  

When the keys disappeared, Singahache pointed accusing fingers at councilors who had signed a petition against him to frustrate a planned council meeting. 

The keys of the block, which hosts more than 50 offices and the district council hall, are deposited at the police station every evening for safe custody.
