Councilors in Mbarara district Council have passed a resolution to deny fellows without vaccination cards access to Council meetings.
In a motion raised by Jennifer Tumuhairwe a councilor for Rwanyamahembe sub county last week during a council meeting at Kamukuzi , Mbarara, she stressed that non vaccinated Councilors will put at risk those that are vaccinated.
“Most Councilors in this council have not been vaccinated, and this puts our lives at risk as Councilors including me who is already vaccinated,” she revealed.
In his Submission, Didas Tabaro the Mbarara district boss noted that he won’t allow non-vaccinated people to access his offices especially Councilors.
“Mbarara district has two vaccination Centres at Bwizibwera, and Kamukuzi so I don’t see the reason as to why up to now we have Councilors who are not vaccinated,” he added.
Same Council resolved to give 10 acres of land in Rushozi cell, Rubaya Sub County, Kashari south constituency, Mbarara district to the government for the construction of an industrial park.
Councilors who talked to this online publication stated that many youths in the district will benefit from the industrial park since it will create employment opportunities for them.
