Onzima noted that most leaders are elected to office because they spend a lot of money during the campaigns adding that there is need to create an environment to ensure that people who have the ability to lead are elected whether they have the money or not.

“A good number of people who can lead this country have turned their backs on leadership positions because they do not have enough money to get into politics,” Onzima explained.

The state minister further stated that there is need for Ugandans to work together for the sustainable political stability of the country and not be divided.

“We must not be selfish by focusing on our political parties, religion and tribe that divide this country. This makes the country and Africa as a whole lag behind. There is need to work without any form of discrimination,” the state minister stressed.

The Report whose study was conducted in twenty five districts highlights among other things that most councilors in the lower local governments lack academic qualifications and recommends that they should at least hold an Ordinary Level certificate of education.

The Report further recommends that unspent funds at the local government level should not be sent back to the Consolidated Fund but be utilized and accounted for in the subsequent financial year.

The Chairperson of the Committee on Public Service and Local Government, Hon. Grace Freedom Kwiyucwiny, said that the recommendations in this Study Report are aimed at improving participation, financing and service delivery at the local governments.
