By kakogoso vanansio
Leaders of Southern Division in Kabale Municipality have petitioned the office of the Municipal town clerk over the appointment of James Twinamatsiko as Principal Assistant Town Clerk.
On Monday this week, Joseph Bagonza Monday, the Kabale Municipality Town Clerk, transferred Twinamatsiko to Southern from Central Division replacing Alex Baingana. Baingana was transferred from Southern to Central Division as the Principal Assistant Town Clerk.
In a petition, dated August 08th, 2018 signed by fifteen political leaders and addressed to the office of the Kabale municipality Town clerk, leaders said that Twinamatsiko’s deployment is uncalled for.
Leaders claimed that when he was principal town clerk two years ago, Twinamatsiko was responsible for nonpayment of allowances and wages for staff and councilors totaling to seven million shillings.
In a petition, they also accused him of being non cooperative. They also claimed that during his tenure, Twinamatsiko failed to handover the division’s Honda Motorcycle registration number LG 010213 which used to help as transport means in revenue collection.
The Southern Division LCIII chairperson Macklin Batwaare said that she is also ready to follow the decision of the councilors since they are already claiming that Twinamatsiko is not cooperative and development starts with teamwork.
However in Monday’s response letter to the petition dated 9th August 2018,he noted that the transfer still stands since all the councilors’ accusations are not verified. He added that it is not the duty of political leaders to take a disciplinary action against a civil servant. Twinamatsiko had earlier denied all the allegations saying that an audit was done and he was cleared of any wrongdoing.
