Councilors and other political leaders in Southern division in Kabale municipality have rejected the reinstatement of the embattled principal assistant town clerk James Twinamatsiko.
On 6th August 2018, the Kabale Municipality town clerk Joseph B. Monday transferred Twinamatsiko to southern division from central division replacing Alex Beingana, who was transferred to central division. Annet Mbabazi, the Treasurer for Central Division was transferred to Northern Division while Rose Arinaitwe was also transferred from Northern Division to Central Division as the Treasurer.
James Twinamatsiko served as the Principle Assistant Town Clerk for Southern Division from July 2015 to April 2016. But, the announcement about his reinstatement has left political leaders in the division angered. Leaders have rejected his reinstatement accusing him of being uncooperative, harsh, non-transparent, incompetent and corrupt.
Yesterday councilors held an emergency meeting and rejected Twinamatsiko accusing him for swindling councilor’s allowances worth 7million shillings during his term of office, which forced former councilors to drag the division to court. They also accused Twinamatsiko for failure to handover motorcycle registration number LG 010213, when he was handing over in 2016.
However, Twinamatsiko said that all the accusations raised by councilors are baseless. He added that he has been using the motorcycle because it’s Kabale municipal council property.
The Kabale town clerk Joseph B. Monday said that he has not received a complaint from southern division councilors.
