Godfrey Muhonge, the Chairperson Public Accounts Committee for Kibaale district has resigned to join active politics. 

In a letter dated March 4, 2020, addressed to the Kibaale LCV Chairperson, Muhonge contends that he has resigned due to busy engagements that have not enabled him to effectively perform his duties. 

“This is to inform you that due to equally pressing engagements, I am unable to effectively continue with the office. I wish to thank you for the opportunity you offered me and the council for trusting me to serve in this capacity,” Read part of the letter.   

In the letter, Muwonge explained that he has resigned his position as the Chairperson of the Public Accounts Committee to allow him freely to participate in the forthcoming elections. 

He wants to contest for the Kibaale LCV Chairperson seat that is currently being held by Peter Amara who was elected into the office in 2016.

Muhonge challenged other members on the committee to diligently continue executing their work to ensure appropriate accountability and transparency in the district.

Muhonge was appointed Chairperson Public Accounts Committee in October 2016 alongside four other members including Thereza Katonzi, Lawrence Kyomuhendo, Vincent Tumusange and Julius Bagonza. Their term of office was to elapse in 2021.

Amara says another member with a high level of integrity will be appointed to replace Muhonge.

The Local Government Public Accounts Committee is the statutory organ of every District Local Government that is established by section 89 of the Local Government Act, 1997 as amended.

It is part of the effort of the government to make the management of public affairs transparent and less prone to abuse by both elected and appointed officers.

PAC members hold office for 5 years and are eligible for re-appointment for one more term only.
