Kigarama peoples Sacco One of the biggest SACCOS in greater Bushenyi is at risk of collapsing due to the alleged bad leadership of over staying in power through a dictatorship manner.
Some Members say that Mr. Rukumbagaza Grace, who has been in position of chairman of the Sacco for 12 years, doesn’t want to leave power yet his term of office according to Sacco’s constitution is yet to expire.
In a delegate meeting that took place at Bugarama secondary school on Saturday 8/2/2019, it is alleged that Rukumbagaza and his supporters wanted to amend the Sacco’s constitution to remove an article of term limit such that he (Rukumbagaza) can stand for Sacco chairman elections scheduled this year.
Although the amendment bill wasn’t on the agenda, Rukumbagaza’s supporters wanted to bring it through Any Other Business [AOB] which anti Rukumbagaza group totally refused, a thing that forced Rukumbagaza to report some members like kahima Samson the founder of the Sacco and at the same time former chairman sacco and mr Baryayaka Joab whose father is the founder that they weren’t supposed to attend the meeting alleging that they aren’t delegates.
RDC Sheema district Mr. Frank Kyereere forced out the two named above however he ordered delegates to mean the specific business of the meeting and they leave out the amendment saga, a thing that brought thunderous celebrations in meeting hall by anti Rukumbagaza group.
Mzee Kahima told our reporter that he can’t believe that he is the one who was chased out of the meeting of the Sacco he founded he added “I hear Rukumbagaza telling people that he has done great towards our Sacco, what else would you have done, we voted you expecting great not less and that one should not make you refuse handing over power, are you waiting up to when Jesus comes back?” kahima said.
Mr. Buryayaka Job told www.mknewslink.com that the only problem of Rukumbagaza is that he doesn’t want wise people to reach near him, that kigarama Sacco no longer has employees who work for it exceeding two years because of bad acts in management however he was happy that the planned deal of amending the constitution was ruled out.
Sheema district commercial officer Mr. Karakure Ronald advised them to call a small meeting and they sort-out their differences amicably as a family and that if not they may lead the sacco into hell.
Some delegates revealed to us that chasing mzee kahima out of the meeting was totally wrong and they should apologize to him so that he can continue advising them.
