Bushenyi District Service Commission led by Lydia Rwakishaya yesterday issued three interdiction letters to Bushenyi Ishaka municipal top officers;engineer,treasurer and procurement officer.
The interdicted officers are; Deus Nuwagaba the municipal engineer , Jackson Muhwezi Beyendeza the treasurer and Roberto Nuwagira the procurement officer.
The interdiction by the three follows a directive by the minister of local government Raphael Magyezi to the town clerk of the area to forward names of the three for interdiction.
The town clerk William Makune has immediately assigned duties of the three senior officers to staff from the municipality to be acting as the three are out of office.
The interdiction of the three came as a result of numerous complaints from civil societies; Western Ankole Civil Society Forum and Make Bushenyi Greater Again about the continuous stealing of money by the staff.
What landed Beyendeza into trouble was the sharing of the 194 million local revenue to departments while divisions did not get their shares, the Engineer Deus did shoddy works on roads and also took fuel from Shell without permission from Municipal authorities and he refused to pay and the procurement officer gave all annual contracts to one company which is suspected to be his and engineer Deus.
The fracas of the municipality led to the closure of the municipal headquarters by the municipal councilors, mayor and civil societies for three days.
