Bunyoro parliamentary caucus has warned Masindi district local government leadership against internal fights.
The warning was made Wednesday by the chairperson Bunyoro Parlaiamentary caucus also Bulisa county Member of parliament, Stephen Birahwa Mukitale, during a press conference at Kolping hotel in Masindi town.
He explained that the internal fights amongst Masindi district leaders will take it nowhere but impact negatively on the local people . He advised the leaders to concentrate on discussing matters which will move Masindi forward and desist from fighting over irrelevant things.
He explained that there should be togetherness between the sub county, district leadership and the Bunyoro parliamentarians if Masindi district is to achieve big from government.
For the last three years Masindi local government under the leadership of Cosmas Byaruhanga has been embroiled in fights between the RDC’s office, Bunyoro affairs minister , Ernest Kiiza, the district council and the chief administrative officers.
Cosmas Byaruhanga, the chairperson LCV has always been accusing the RDC Godfrey Nyakahuma and the state minister for Bunyoro affairs, Ernest Kiiza of dividing his council.
Two months back Byaruhanga survived an impeachment which he attributed to the RDC’s office and the Bunyoror affairs minister. The district councilors wanted to impeach their chairperson accusing him of incompetency, abuse of office, corruption, implementing unlawful orders among others.
Masindi district chairperson has for several times tried to convince the district council to recommend the transfer of the RDC but nothing has materialized.
Last year the same council passed a resolution recommending for the transfer of the then chief administrative officer, John Nyakahuma and recommended for the closure of his office which was implemented by the district chairman.
The office was opened with a court order which John Nyakahuma the then CAO secured from Masindi grade 1 magistrate. The fight resulted into the transfer of the CAO to Gomba district who was replaced by Yiga Mukasa from the same district.
Since this term began in 2016 Cosmas Byaruhanga has worked with four chief administrative officers.
