Fort Portal City Mayor, Rev Willy Kintu Muhanga adds that due to lack of guidelines; he has not yet formed an executive committee that would implement council resolutions. According to Muhanga, the operationalisation of Fort Portal city led to the immediate closure of Fort Portal municipal bank accounts.
Benon Matwire, the Secretary Uganda Government and Allied Workers Union, says Muhakanizi has a negative attitude towards Salary Increment and that is why he is saying they have other funding requirements like elections.
According to the Assistant Town Clerk Fort Portal Municipal Council, John Bosco Rusoke, without an approved budget, it means that council won’t have mandate to receive or pay any money with effect from July 1, 2019. He also says that they won’t be allowed to collect any revenue.
Fort Portal Municipality East Division L.C.III chairperson Willy Magezi told the residents that it would be a great loss if the minister considered the petition of Karambi leaders without hearing from the voters.
