Last week, Lira municipality councillors asked the Local Government Ministry to transfer Samuel Ahabwe accusing him of failing to implement council resolutions. They cited failure to evict vendors from various streets and failing to stop Saving Grace Limited from managing Coronation Park, a public open space.
According to Ahabwe, they had proposed to construct a storied structure and stage in the park. He however, says they can’t execute their plans until Saving Grace, a private business company that was contracted to manage the park for a year at Shillings 5 million each month leaves the park.
Ahabwe says the money is meant to finance construction of a one storied structure, public Stage at the public space.
