Kamuli district council yesterday ended in a stalemate following a heated debate between the councilors over the nomination of Thomas Kategere for the post of LC V vice chairman.

He was selected by Ahmed Kawugu Kawoya Mugaino, the newly sworn in Kamuli district LC V chairperson for approval by the council as his deputy.

 

 

Several councilors objected to the appointment of Kategera as Vice LC V chairman raising questions on his integrity. Last year, Kategera was implicated for forging council documents. The councilor also argued that Kategere does not behave in a way befitting of a district vice chairman.

 

 

 They cited a recent incident where Kategere was dragged to court by Catherine Amal, Kamuli Chief Administrative Officer for threatening violence and using foul language.

 

 

Samuel Bamwole, the newly elected speaker of Kamuli district council adjourned the council prematurely because of the stalemate saying that he will consult the solicitor general on the way forward over the matter.

 

 

Kawugu, who was visibly angered by the failure by councilors to approve his deputy, was left speechless. He later said that he was determined to unite the district council that appears to have started off on a bad note.
