The Kabale district residents District Commissioner Mr. Godfrey Nyakahuma has intervened in the case in which Kabale residents are bitter with UNRA, Kabale Municipal Authorities over the drainage channel along Kabale Katuna Road.
RDC’s intervention comes at a time when residents of Igabiro cell, Mwanjari ward southern Division Kabale Municipality have raised a lot of grievances on the situation they always go through whenever it rains.
Speaking to our reporter at southern division headquarters, The village Chairperson Igabiro cell Athenazious Mugasi and his Mwanjari Ward counterpart Rurekyera Andrew say that they addressed their grievances to UNRA who complied but they were shocked on listening to the mayor on a phone call with their Manager telling him not to address the aggrieved residents but rather concentrate on his work.
The chairpersons add that UNRA never compensated anybody in their villages and those that the Authority claims to have compensated are from other cells.
They accused the Kabale Municipality Mayor Sentaro Byamugisha for politicizing the situation saying that even though they opposed him in last elections, he should know that they are also Ugandans and need equal services.
The chairperson southern Division Kabale Municipality Mrs. Macklin Batware and the deputy mayor Mrs. Kedress Mutabazi said that an immediate intervention must be taken before they start registering some death in her area.
