Kasese District Executive Committee Changed

The Kasese District chairperson Lt. Col. Mawa Muhindo has today caused changes in his executive for effective and efficient service delivery of Government programs.
There had been plans by the district council to censure the district vice chairperson Hon. Naume Mbambu and the secretary for production Hon. Julia Masika for allegedly being incompetent.
Col. Mawa made the pronouncement today in his state of affairs during a council meeting at the district headquarters-Rukoki in Kasese Municipality.

However, the Chairman did not name the vice Chairperson but said he will ensure that he is always in office but added that under circumstances where he can’t manage he will be appointing one of his secretaries to take over.

In her words, Hon. Naume Mbambu the former vice chairperson said that issues raised in the petition were personal and not institutional as the challenges experienced seemed to be more of institutional than personal.

Hon. Julia Masika who was the secretary for production said that she wasn’t happy being dropped from the executive adding that they would have given her chance to defend herself before council.

In other related developments, the chairman said that they are ready to fight people who intend to divide the people of Kasese along ethnic lines. This comes after one of the councilors had recently presented before the parliamentary committee meeting that the Basongora and bakingwe tribes were being marginalized by the Kasese district administration.
Mawa said that the district is still enjoying unity in ethnic diversity and encouraged council to rally behind him in the fight against people who intend to divide the people of Kasese along ethnic lines.
