Byaruhanga Cosmas, notes that they were irked by the RDC coming to the district headquarters premises with a bouncer something he says this was an insecurity to them since the bouncer was not allowing any one to access the CAO’s office.
Since Cosmas Byaruhangs was elected as the district chairperson, chief administrative officers have been changed three times.
Meanwhile Masindi district leadership is demanding for investigations against the chief administrative officer Masindi, John Nyakahuma.
Currently there is a big disagreement between the district chairperson Masindi Cosmas Byaruhanga, the district council and the chief administrative officer, John Nyakahuma.
Cosmas Byaruhaga, the Masindi district LCVchair person blames Nyakahuma for crippling service delivery in the entire district arguing that since this financial year began, they have been having many challenges with the current chief administrative officer.
He adds that CAO has failed to pay the road gangs, utilize the money meant for the construction of roads, and also look after the sugar cane project which is at Kihonda demonstration farm.
