COVID 19 CASES: BUSHENYI DISTRICT HOLDS COUNCIL WITH OUT SPEAKER, CHAIRMAN
By Wilber Muhwezi Kasibante
In the history of Bushenyi district Local Government, today the district held a council without a full speaker and a chairman after the two were admitted at Mbarara regional referral hospital.
The two tested positive for COVID 19 and are admitted at the hospital to receive treatment.
The council was chaired by the deputy speaker Annet Kenyena and deliberated on many issues concerning the district including passing of a supplementary budget of 80 Million meant to do COVID 19 activities in the district.
Jaffari Bassajabalaba and Justine Burisadi have spent two weeks and one week respectively at Mbarara region hospital and possibly they will be discharged soon.
Jaffari is re-contesting for the district chairmanship while the speaker is not contesting again.
Jaffari was represented by Peter Ndyahooza Mugume and he answered questions from the political wing.
In his closing remarks, the Chief Administrative Officer Malik Mahab told the meeting that he was surprised to find the names of the speaker and chairman on social media as victims of Covid 19 which is against the law.
The CAO assured councilors, technical staff and the public that the situation in Bushenyi is not worrying, it’s under control therefore they should not relax. He added that the president in his speech last evening warned Ugandans to follow Standard Operating Procedures in order to kick COVID 19 out of Uganda.
