Women council chairpersons from Wakiso District on Saturday stormed
the office of the Resident District Commissioner Rose Kirabira demanding for
the immediate distribution of relief food.
They accused the RDC and the district task force for keeping the
food in stores and yet the beneficiaries are starving.
Ruth Mary Nalukaaga, the Chairperson of Wakiso sub-county women council alleges
that they learnt of the delivery of food to the district a week
ago but members of the taskforce have refused to distribute the relief.
Cue in; /// yensonga lwaki nzize…
Cue out; … kutuleetera buwunga.///
Sarah Busuulwa, the chairperson of women’s council Wakiso Town Council says that
it makes no sense keeping the food in stores when the beneficiaries are
about to die of hunger.
Cue in; /// Emmere yo gyebaaleeta…
Cue out; … ensonga eyo ennafu.///
However, Kirabira declined to comment on the matter. She instead accused
journalists of witch-hunting her.
But the State Minister for Relief and Disaster Preparedness Musa Ecweru
said that the food which was delivered to Wakiso district was meant for only
Ecweru asked residents of Wakiso to remain patient.
