The aggrieved councillors include Kevin Ayo the former district vice chairperson, Vincent Mitala former secretary Works and Technical services and Jimmy Olum former secretary for production and marketing and Caroline Acheng, who has since been reinstated as secretary Health and Education. They were censured over allegations of incompetence, abuse of office and embezzlement of public resources after a motion was passed in a council meeting on 22 December 2018.
The angry councillors who stormed the offices carrying placards called for the transfer of the Atwoko who has spent one year in the office. They accused him of among other issues misappropriating finances and incompetence.
William Komakech, the Kitgum Resident District Commissioner, says that there is limited development at the market site at the moment compared to the duration the works commenced. He attributed the delay to bickering between the contractor and consultant.
