The Ishaka-Bushenyi Municipal town clerk William Makhune has interdicted three Municipal officials.

The officials are Deus Nuwagaba the Municipal Engineer, Jackson Muhwezi Collins the Municipal Treasurer and Roberto Nuwagira, the Municipal procurement officer.

During a meeting chaired by the Local Government Minister Raphael Magezi at Ishaka-Bushenyi Municipal headquarters, the minister directed that the three officials are interdicted and others arrested to pave way for investigations into alleged abuse of office and giving false accountability.

“We have directed them to step aside for three months as investigations are being done and after the report of the investigations will be released and will see what to do next following the report’s recommendations”. Makhune said.

Trouble for the officials started after the Ishaka- Bushenyi Municipal Mayor, Jackson Kamugasha and his councillors wrote a petition to the Local Government Minister asking for his intervention in the loss of over 100 million shillings local revenue.

Lee Kakonge, of Make Bushenyi Great Again, welcomed the interdiction saying that it has been overdue and have waited for it for the last one year.
