The Mbarara Resident District Commissioner (RDC) ,Emmy Katera Turyabagyenyi has intervened in a rift between the district Chairman ,Didas Tabaro and Patrick Tumuhimbise Bigambwensi the mayor Bwizibwera-Rutooma Town council over work plan for five road projects in Bwizibwera-Rutooma Town council.
Didas Tabaro the district chairman and Patrick Tumuhimbise Bigambwensi the mayor Bwizibwera-Rutooma Town Council have been entangled in a cold war,after the district chairman suspended the grading of five roads in the town council over lack of value for money.
The roads include;Muhekyera road, Akashushano road,Kamparo road,Rwentojo-Bwongozya road and Akashenyi-mitooma road which were all valued at shs.43 million.
Speaking during a crisis meeting held at the district headquarters in Bwizibwera on Tuesday, Tabaro revealed that he intervened upon receiving complaints from a section of Town council councillors who were demanding the work plan for five road projects in the town council.
Tabaro further faulted the town council leadership for failure to invite the district leadership to launch the grading of the roads.
However in his remarks, Patrick Tumuhimbise Bigambwensi the mayor Bwizibwera-Rutooma Town Council attributed the fracas to lack of information flow between his office and the one of the district chairman.
In the meeting which was chaired by the RDC Emmy Turyabagyenyi ,it called for an extraordinary council meeting where Bwizibwera-Rutooma Town council councillors will review the work plans for the road projects.
The same meeting ,resolved to further suspend the grading of roads in the Town council in order to pave way for a special audit by the district internal auditor.
