Bushenyi Ishaka municipal councilors have today 4th May 2021 rejected to hold Sectoral committee meetings after getting information that there were no allowances for their attendance.
The councilors from the four sectoral committees; of works, social services, production Finance and administration who had converged at the municipal headquarters for the meetings angrily walked away.
According to David Betega the municipal town clerk, the municipality has not received money from the central government for some time.
He intimated to www.mknewslink.com managing editor that they have money on papers but have no money in bank accounts.
Municipalities and cities used to collect a lot of money from bus and taxi parks until the president stopped them from getting taxes from parks therefore cities and municipalities are yawning.
Betega revealed to www.mknewslink.com that the majority councilors who lost in the elections were the ones discouraging the rest from attending the meetings.
He noted that some of them were demanding for their annual ex gratia, and expressed worry that they wouldn’t be paid when their term of office expires in June 2021.
www.mknewslink.com did not talk to the councilors because they quickly left the headquarters in anger after they learnt that there were no allowances.
