Rukiga district council is split over the nomination of Frank Kyereere Besigye for appointment to the district Public Accounts Committee. On Friday last week, the Rukiga LC V Chairperson, Alexander Kampikaho presented the names of the nominees to Public Accounts Committee before the district council for approval in accordance with section 88 of the Local Governments Act CAP 243.

The others are Jamiru Ahams Maningi, David Kabatereine, Livingstone Tugumisirize and Pricilla Tushabe. The nomination of Kyereere hasn't gone down well with councilors, saying he has a bad track record. Kyereere is the incumbent Rwamucucu Sub County National Resistance Movement-NRM party Chairperson.

 

 

He previously served as the Rwamucucu sub county LC 3 chairperson. On December 15, 2003 Kyereere was convicted and sentenced to one and half year in jail for corruption and issuing documents without authority. Michael Kwarikunda Mbareeba, the Rukiga District male youth councilor, says the appointment of Kyereere on such a committee isn't fair.

 

 

He says there are very many responsible citizens in the district who can feel the position.

Eddie Mugisha, the Rwamucucu councilor asks the LC V chairperson to drop Kyereere's name, saying he is untrustworthy.  He says considering Kyereere's name will be a very big embarrassment to the district.

 

//Cue in: "itwe bamwe tukuzire…

Cue out: …kuba baretiringire."//

But, Jackson Muganiizi, the Kamwezi sub county LC V councilor, says Kyereere is a very hard working man and capable of serving the committee diligently.

 

//Cue in: "defend the name."//

//Cue out: "is open"//

Rukiga

//Cue in: "titurikwenda ngu tu…

Cue out: …indeed yeijaho."//

 

Mable Size, the Bukinda Sub county Woman Councilor, saying there is no need to block Kyereere for appointment since he will be working with others.

//Cue in: "twikirize abantu ari…

Cue out: …aha kakiiko."//

Brenda Ainembabazi, the Muhanga Town Council female councilor, says there is need to feud over Kyereere's name, saying he is a reformed man after serving jail term at Ndorwa Government Prison.

//Cue in: "waza Omu University…

Cue out: …omu nkora."//

 

Alexander Kampikaho, the Rukiga LC V Chairperson, says he appointed Kyereere to thank him for helping win his seat.

 

 

//Cue in: "honorable youth male 

Cue out: …risk anything"//

Kyereere accuses his enemies for influencing the councilors to block his appointment.
