“We are Honorable councillors we are voted to come and be the voice of our people ,so we have decided that the Council business should stop here until further notice”Baryomunsi explained.

In her submission,Priscah Mulongo the deputy Mayor Mbarara city blasted Councillors roasting the executive Team over unfulfilled resolutions to be cheerful of the so far fulfilled resolutions and stop blame games.
“As the executive we are there and we are working ,we have been able to title most of the council lands, Constructed several roads, only that we need an extraordinary Council session to aveil what we have been able to achieve”Mulongo explained.
Mrs.Betty Tigefera a councillor representing the elderly conquered with the deputy Mayor and called for an extraordinary Council session after two months to carryout an audit of the so far fulfilled resolutions.
The Mbarara City Speaker,Mr. Bonny Tashobya Karusya,urged the executive team and the City clerk to formally compile a detailed report indicating the resolutions so far achieved before the next Council session .
“These undone resolutions it is too much, this is not a casino hall that councillors have to always deliberate yielding no results,am adjourning this Council to the the next session” Tashobya
