THIS WEEK: Kasese leaders clash over splitting district

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | There was drama and chaos in a district council meeting in Kasese District on Oct. 14 after a resolution was passed to create three new districts. The LC5 chairman Geoffrey Sibendire Bigogo, opposed the move causing more tension among the councilors who have long agitated for new districts.

The chairman stated that the Speaker Geoffrey Bwerere erred in endorsing the resolution of the council that approved the creation of Bwera, Hima and Nyamugasani districts. The move has divided district leaders including MPs.

District councilors were returning from a one-month consultation exercise when one of them, Richard Bomera, moved a motion that the Speaker subjects the motion of creating new districts to a vote. This was the second time the issue has come up in a council meeting.
