The Cabinet and NRM party Caucus are set to convene separately next week to decide on the fate of new municipalities that has become controversial in Parliament.
Members of Parliament for the second day on Thursday rejected passing a resolution for the upgrading of 12 town councils to municipality status pending clearance of new districts as earlier promised by government.
The government on Wednesday through the minister of Local Government, viagra order advice http://chaosoffroad.com/wp-includes/canonical.php Adolf Mwesige moved a motion in the house asking for the resolution to complete the process.
The debate however, http://copdx.org.au/wp-includes/class-wp-dependency.php turned dramatic when MPs resurrected the unfulfilled government promise of creating of several new of districts.
Early this year the same minister (Adolf) moved a motion asking for the creation of 20 districts of Kagadi, Kakumiro, Omoro, Namisindwa, Pakwach, Butebo, Rukiga, Rubanda, Kitagwenda and Kyotera. Others are Kyadondo, Nabilatuk, Bugweri, Kasanda, Bunyangabu, Kwania, Kapelebyong, Obongi, Kazo, Rwampara, Kikuube, Madi Okollo,
Kihiihi and two to be created from Kasese district.
Months later, Cabinet which had itself approved the move again passed a moratorium (suspension) on the creation of new districts until further notice citing lack of funds to implement the plan.
The Parliament`s committee of Public Service and Local Government that was charged with the duty to scrutinize the motion had concluded their report that favored the creation of almost all the named new districts to be.
Before concluding on the districts — that many MPs clearly have personal interest in, — Adolf recently brought another motion to create 65 constituencies that was passed by Parliament after some difficulties. After constituencies, the minister emerged with another motion for new municipalities.
MPs however became impatient and demanded that minister first reports to the House the fate of 20 districts that government had committed to create.
The Deputy Speaker, Jacob Oulanyah who chaired the house adjourned the house asking the minister to return in the next sitting with the information on the suspended creation of districts before the municipalities can be handled.
Adolf returned on Thursday with a new plan: withdrawing the motion which he moved early this year for the creation of new districts since the government has discarded the plan for now.
The house caught fire before the minister could even finish his submission and more interestingly from the NRM side.
The Kibaale woman MP, Robinah Nbabanja (NRM) who was seated just behind Government Chief Whip, Ruth Nankabirwa didn’t care jumped to the microphone on top of her voice saying her people had been neglected by the government.
“We are tired of being lied to by this government and it`s time for the minister to get it clear that no more jokes will be tolerated. We want Kagadi to become a district since we have had the worst service delivery,” Nabanja who is also Treasurer of NRM Caucus said.
Nabanja`s approach to the matter was supported by the majority forcing Oulanyah to again adjourn the house to next week.
We have now learnt that the Cabinet is going to have a special sitting on Monday to see the way of harmonizing the two (districts and municipalities).
The NRM Caucus will also convene the next day on Tuesday morning to get a common ground on how to handle the matter before the house resumes on the same day afternoon.
