The Chief of Defence Forces-CDF Gen. Wilson Mbusi Mbadi has cautioned political leaders in Kasese District against exciting residents with empty promises.  

Mbadi says the local population is often excited by politically driven pledges and statements, which fell outside the mandate of the politicians. 

He was meeting Kasese officials during the formulation of the district development agenda 2021/2021-2025/2021.

According to Mbadi, once leaders promise things they cannot achieve they automatically create anxiety among the population with the potential of breeding conflict.

Cue out: …very long long time.”// 

Mbadi also blames the recent conflicts in Kasese district on the silence of responsible people who failed to guide their communities on things that matter and unearthing where the problems lie.   

//Cue in: “We had kept…

Mbadi tasked leaders to focus on changing the mindset of the people towards development and how they can tap into the vast resources in their land.

Tony Harold Muhindo, the Kasese Parliamentary Group chairperson, says that they have pooled their energies together irrespective of their political affiliation for the good of district. 

Muhindo said they are working with the district local leadership to develop key areas they will front before the government in their five-year tenure.
