The minister of state for local government Jenifer Naminyango yesterday revealed that the censure process of Mitooma district chairman Benon Karyaija is on course.
She noted a tribunal composed of five members headed by a judge was put in place and is about to commence work.
“As a ministry, We have already instituted a tribunal to look into issues raised by the councilors and anytime it will commence work” Minister Naminyango told www.mknewslink.com editor.
She made this revelation yesterday at Kyamuhunga sub-county headquarters during the official launch of Kyamuhunga town council in Bushenyi district.
At the end of Sept. 2016, eighteen Mitooma district councilors out of 26 signed a petition to censure their earlier very popular district chairmen over many issues that include corruption, causing financial loss among others.
She noted that tribunal will sit in Mitooma and evaluate the issues raised by councilors and if found valid, the district chairman would be censured.
On the other hand Chairman Karyaija told listeners of Hunter fm radio recently that he is innocent and was sure that he would not be implicated by the tribunal.
