Namisindwa Leaders Commends Lumumba Visit

Namisindwa County MP Apollo Masika has lauded yesterday’s visit of Minister for Special Duties in the Office of the Prime Minister, Justine Kasule Lumumba, to the district, where she tackled issues of accountability and transparency. Masika expressed gratitude for the timely engagement during the Baraza held on Thursday in Namboko.

Masika voiced his dismay upon discovering that members of the district roads committee allegedly received allowances of 1,000,000 UGX and 100 liters of fuel, despite his absence from signing such documents. He clarified that he consistently delegates a representative to attend these meetings on his behalf.

Highlighting the necessity of collective action among voters, Masika stressed the need to address the impunity displayed by those entrusted with guiding the district. He urged constituents to unite in holding accountable those responsible for overseeing district affairs.

Emma Bwayo the Namisindwa Male Youth Councilor commended the residents of Namboko for their courage in speaking out and encouraged continued advocacy for increased public engagement, particularly through accountability forums, as a means to combat corruption.

Lumumba Justine the Minister with Special Duties in the office of Prime Minister asked district authorities to fast track additional wage bill for recruitment of substantive heads of departments and called on both technical and political leaders to be transparent to the people
