Hoima city council has today passed a resolution halting Buliisa district or any other part of Bunyoro from seceding from Bunyoro kitara kingdom.
The motion was moved by Hon. Sylvia Balyesiima Nalumaga the leader of government business hoima city council seconded by Hon.Achilis Kiiza the secretary for health.
Brian Kaboyo the mayor for Hoima city revealed that the issue of Buliisa breaking off from Bunyoro kitara kingdom is the interest of a few people who have their personal interests to make them bigger than Bunyoro yet Bunyoro has existed before those bringing such ideas.
Kaboyo said they have lived in harmony with the Bagungus without any problem so those who are saying they are being sidelined it’s not true that’s why they have decided to come out as a city to say NO and stay united as one Bunyoro.
Edward Isingoma the speaker of Hoima city council exposed that as council they have pronounced themselves condemning the whole act of Buliisa or any part of Bunyoro from splitting from Bunyoro kitara kingdom reason being if one of them breaks away it would mean they have set a precedence for other entities to break away from the kingdom.
Isingoma said the unity of Bunyoro kitara is the strength of Bunyoro in terms of bargaining for services thus adding that if there are issues that members of Buliisa are finding uncomfortable with but these are issues that can be discussed as members of one family.
He stressed that in addition to the Bunyoro kitara council that thinks and plans for the future of the kingdom, as city council they are also a cooperate body and their mandate comes from that cooperate body because they are elected by the people so they speak on their behalf.
During the same council meeting, the council also gave Hoima city authority two weeks’ ultimatum to advertise the vacant positions at the city publicly since it has been overdue so that people are called for interviews thus to feel the work load gap at the city.
