Members of the parliamentary committee on appointments has recommended to summon Sheema district leaders to appear before inter parliamentary committee over sectarian tendencies.
The committee decision follows a petition by the catholic community in Sheema district who on 10th October petitioned the president alleging that they are being discriminated in job distribution and that their church projects like schools are being marginalized and wondered whether the NRM in the area is a reserve of people from one religious denomination.
During a meeting between the MPs, district leaders and members of district service commissions from Greater Bushenyi held at Bushenyi district headquarters, Sheema district chairman Can. David Kabigumira was faulted by councilor Jackson Musinguzi for promoting sectarianism and appealed to the president to prevail over him so as reverse the trend that has negatively affected the catholic community in terms of human resource development.
The same accusations were supported by Sheema RDC Frank Kyerere who called the MPs to come on ground arrest the situation.
However, Kabigumira denied the allegations and instead shifted the blame to the district council members whom he said sometimes take bribes people with a promise of recommending them for jobs something he noted is flouting the law and this has put him in conflict with them.
Beatrice Rwakimari the Woman MP Ntungamo district expressed concern and resolved that they should be summoned to parliament for further interrogation with a view of trying to solve the impasse.
