The relocation of Itojo Sub-county and Nyamukana town council in Ntungamo district to the newly created Ruhaama East has angered leaders of Ntungamo district.

Ntungamo district council in 2015 passed a resolution to split Ruhaama County and Ruhaama East. Nyamukana Town council, Itojo, Ntungamo, Rwekiniro, Kafunjo and Nyarutuntu Sub Counties formed the original Ruhaama constituency, while Ruhaaama East, Rukoni East and west, Nyakyera Sub counties, Rwoho Town council, Kitwe Town Council and Nyakyera Town council formed Ruhaama East County.

While approving the creation of Ruhaama East Constituency last week, Raphael Magyezi, Local government Minister relocated Itojo Sub County and Nyakyera Town Council to Ruhaama East contrary to the district council resolution.

Now leaders of the two administrative units are protesting the action of the minister.

Benon Kwesigabo, the Chairperson LC III Itojo Sub-county and acting Mayor Nyamukana Town Council says they are petitioning parliament for the decision of locating the two areas to Ruhaama East whose headquarters will be in Rukoni Sub County compared to Ruhaama which has headquarters at Nyarutuntu Sub County.

//Cue in: “we are petitioning…

Cue out: …in Ruhaama East.”//

Denis Muhumuza Savimbi, the District councillor Itojo Sub County, says when they moved from Rwamapara District to Ntungamo they wanted services closer and shifting them to Ruhaama East is not unacceptable.

//Cue in: “we shall remain… 

Cue out: …we have spoken.”//

Adens Ntare Rutaro, a resident of Nyamukana, says that they were surprised to find out that the boundaries were altered by selfish individuals who opposed the district council resolution.

He says the district is given the mandate by the constitution to make such resolutions noting that he is against the new demarcation.

//Cue in: “surprising to us... 

Cue out: …it is unbecoming.”//

Ruhaama County Member of Parliament, Moses Kahima Mugabe, says he was surprised by the resolution and received numerous complaints from the area residents.

//Cue in: “when this resolution… 

Cue out: …Ruhaama East County.”//

However, Denis Singahache, the LCV Chairperson, says that the district council set the boundaries and submitted the report to the Minister of Local Government.

//Cue in: “for us as…

Cue out: …addressed it accordingly.”//

Magyezi, says they have received the complaint from the district leaders which will be discussed.
