Richard Kiggundu, the Gombolola Internal Security Officer for Mugoye Sub County is in trouble for defying orders to step down from village council polls following his failure to resign from civil service.

Kiggundu was directed by the Kalangala District Security Officer, James Kaliisa to resign his job if he wanted to contest for any local council post in vain. He defied the directive and mobilized residents to protest the decision, saying it was illegal.

 

He went ahead to contest for election in Bumangi Village in Mugoye Sub county. However, the Local council elections act bars civil servants from contesting in local council polls without resigning their positions in government.

 

The Kalangala District Police Commander, Richard Musisi says Kiggundu is wanted for defying the available structures and laws governing Local Council elections.
