Kasese district officials have led a procession in Kasese municipality to celebrate the reappointment of James Mwesigye as Resident District Commissioner. Mwesigye was sent back to Kasese as Resident District Commissioner in the recent reshuffle by President Yoweri Museveni. He replaces Milton Odongo, who succeeded him in 2012 when he was posted to Amuru district.

On Monday, Kasese district officials led by the LC V chairperson Lt Colonel Dura Mawa Muhindo led a procession of vehicles and motorcycles on Kasese town tow welcome Mwesigye. The district officials met Mwesigye at Katunguru Bridge and led him into the district he left two years ago. Speaking at a welcome reception at Gardens Hotel in Kasese, Mawa said the reappointment of Mwesigye was timely since he is key driver for development, wherever he has served.

He claimed that there has been a huge gap between the district leadership and the office of the RDC since Odongo assumed office.Godfrey Kabbyanga, the Mayor Kasese municipality said the district has been like a lost sheep for the last two years adding that, they had lost hope of mobilizing support for the ruling National Resistance Movement. Kabbyanga disclosed that as a mayor he shared the same administration block with the former RDC but says there was not coordination.

Both Kabbyanga and Mawa have been shunning public functions officiated by Odongo. Odongo’s woes with the district officials worsened on January 26 when he blasted the district service commission at Rwenzori square for allegedly betraying the ruling party by giving out civil service jobs to FDC supporters.

As a result, Hosea Baluku, an opposition politician dragged the RDC to court accusing him of mattering utterances in breach of the constitution, gives all Ugandans equality in service delivery. In his remarks, Maj. Mwesigye promised to reunite Kasese residents who he said are divided along tribal and political lines. He also pledged to ensure the mobilization of grass root support for the ruling national resistance movement ahead of the 2016 general elections.
