By Wilber Muhwezi Kasibante
The outgoing town clerk for Bushenyi Ishaka municipality William Makune has warned his successor David Betega to be careful because staff in Bushenyi Ishaka municipality forge signatures.
“They forged mine and stole 112 million shillings. You have to ensure that you sign and stamp to protect yourself from staff who forge signatures,” Makune warned Betega.
The outgoing town clerk said these and more others while giving his speech during a handover function which took place at the municipal council hall today 13th July 2020 afternoon.
The function was attended by the CAO Malik Mahab, the RDC Jolly Tibemanya and the mayor Jackson Kamugasha.
While speaking, the new town clerk David Betega noted that he will prioritize revenue mobilization, physical planning, Sanitation among others.
In his speech the mayor Jackson Kamugasha wondered how much money the municipality lost to the interdicted treasurer Jackson Muhwezi Beyendeza in the last 30 years he has worked for the municipality if he could steal 112M within three months.
Makune warned his successor against deep rooted conflicts within the division’s staff which he tried to solve and failed thus urged him to try and get a solution to them since they are likely to hamper service delivery.
Makune noted that the costs of the case of Manfred which started from chief magistrate’s court up to court of appeal have been lobbied by the area MP Gordon Arinda Cowboy and the municipal properties which include Kabagarame will not be taken away.
David Betega is a resident of Bushenyi and he started his career as an assistant Chief Administrative Officer at Bushenyi Local Government before it was split into other districts. He worked in the counties of Buhweju, Mitooma, Sheema and even worked as town clerk for Kabwohe Itendero town council.
