PIBID VS BUSHENYI DISTRICT COUNCIL: COUNCILLORS PASS RESOLUTION TO BLOCK BUDGET AFTER BEING INVITED FOR HARMONIZATION MEETING
By Wilber Muhwezi Kasibante
Bushenyi district council passed a resolution to block the Presidential Initiative on Banana Industrial Development /BIRDIC budget despite an earlier invitation by company for sensitization about its projects and future activities.
The scheduled meeting was on 31st May 2022 but the resolution by councilors was passed 27th May 2022.
The ambassador of BIRDC/ PIBID Henry continued with the mobilization of the meeting and it took place on 31st May 2022 but was attended by only 5 councilors; Winfred Mbyemire, Rev. Lauben Mugarura, Baker Owomugisha, Speaker Douglas Mucunguzi and Fish Banyanga plus the Chairman Jaffari Bassajabalaba.
Despite the resolution that was diversionary, PIBID waited for councilors to attend the meeting but only the above turned up.
In an interview with www.mknewslink.com , the chairman who was not in the council meeting said that Councillors have a point but they should have come for the meeting to iron out all the differences with PIBID other than boycotting.
Despite the boycott by some councilors, the executive director elaborated very well the vision and mission of the company BIRDC / PIBID and the closed meeting ended very late in the evening.
A mini meeting took place at the factory and was attended by district chairman, speaker, executive director and very few others.
