There was a bitter row between Nyakabirizi division councilors and town clerk over absenteeism of division technical staff.
The row emerged after the most of technical staff failed to turn up for todayâ€™s council held at Nyakabirizi division council hall
Councilors blamed their town clerk Ms. Jackline Namara for not taking action against absenteeism and late coming in technical staff which is lagging the division behind in development.
Mackay Twijukye the Nyakabirizi division speaker blamed the town clerk for protecting absentees saying that she connives with them.
Twijukye added that absenteeism is the beginning of corruption because they get allowances and salaries they have not worked for.
Moses Mugerwa the Nyakabirizi division councilor representing PWDs said that the town clerk is arrogant and negligent of her duties.
Councilors also accuse the division staff for not attending council meetings though it is their mandate.
