MBUGA a pressure group in Bushenyi and civil society have today staged yet another demonstration accusing the town clerk Bushenyi Ishaka municipality of refusing to interdict the tresurer Beyendeza and Engineer Nuwagaba as directed by Minister Rapheal Magyezi.
Two Bushenyi Ishaka Municipal councilors have also refused to join the rest for tour in which Minister Magyezi assigned them to visit the Municipality and discover its boundaries.
Evalist Mucunguzi councilor for ward II Central division,and Ninyesiga Hebert ward IV have refused to join the rest in the tour of municipality boundaries noting that instead of rushing to go for tour,the town clerk William Makune should first effect interdiction to the treasurer and engineer as directed by Magyezi.
During the Friday’s stakeholders meeting Minister Raphael Magezi assigned the town clerk to write the interdiction letters to the people who were caught in wrong before they do a tour as he also assigned them but the town clerk has since been reluctant.
MBUGA team during today’s peaceful demonstration staged at Municipal headquarter under the theme ACTION NOW, INTERDICT THE CORRUPT argued that they have come to realise that corruption is not only within Procurement and Finance but it is from the political leaders including all the technical team at the municipality.
Apollo Lee Kakonge of civil society forum accused the councilors who have gone with the municipality mayor , town clerk in the touring of the municipalty boundaries of being diverted by ugx 11,000 allowance.
Kakonge noted that they should have first made sure that the town clerk signed interdiction letters for the accused before going for a tour which is less important compared to the former.
Evalist and Hebert vowed that they cant sell their municipality because of eleven thousand shillings (11000) as an allowance from the field of touring the boundaries .
