The RDC for Rukungiri district Dan Kaguta has warned residents and politicians against mixing politics with the Corona virus pandemic.
He added that in some areas where they use Local council chairperson and some councilors they tend to give food to their voters leaving the needy group whom they accuse of not supporting them during the elections.
RDC Dan Kaguta said that why for Rukungiri they have used a team of technocrats who are also civil servants in Rukungiri district who are mandated to distribute relief food to the needy people.
â€œAs you can see there is no politician in the whole group, we want only civil servant whom we think has no side while distributing this food,â€ he said.
Kaguta said these while receiving food relief from the Association of Banyaruhinda of Rujumbura in Rukungiri district who donated 9.5 tonnes of maize flour to help residents of Ruhinda Sub County in the national lockdown.
Benson Turamye the chairperson of Banyaruhinda ba Rujumbura development association said they made a study in the whole sub county and identified the most affected people who will get at least 10kg of posho each.
â€œAccording to our findings, the church leaders were among the people who were used to survive on offertory and since churches were closed they donâ€™t have any other stable income and yet they have families,â€ he said.
He said church leader with larger family will get 20kg of maize floor and those with medium family will get 10kg.
