He urged the sworn in councilors to desist from infighting and focus on service delivery and monitoring of the projects implemented at the grassroots level.

Mr.Walala encouraged the newly sworn in district chairpersons to organize retreats for the district councilors in which they will be oriented on rules of procedures and their roles.

The call came after a section of district councilors contested the appointment of the district executive members by the Kabarole district chairman Rwabuhinga Richard.

The chairman appointed Moses Ikagobya of Buheesi sub county vice chairperson, http://clipvoice.it/administrator/components/com_tags/controllers/tags.php Peter Musinguzi Rubona town council Secretary for Finance, http://charadas.org/wp-includes/class-wp-simplepie-sanitize-kses.php Matsipa secretary for community Development, Florence Kadoma secretary for production and Natural Resources and him taking the post of secretary for Education and Health.

Mr.Rwabuhinga said their appointments were based on affirmative action, regional balance, intelligence, working experience and competences among others as per their VCs.

But Joram Bitamanya the councilor representing South division and leader of opposition contested the appointments claiming Fort Portal had been neglected on executive adding that it was unfair to have three members from Bunyangabu County.

He asked the district chairman through the speaker to make amendments in the appointment of the executive and include Fort Portal but his demand yielded no fruits.

Hon. Ruta Gideon, councilor representing Kasenda supported the chairman’s appointments saying without segregations, the secretaries service the interests of the entire district unlike councilors who serve their sub counties.

In his defence the chairman said having three councilors from Bunyangabu on the executive was imperative to prepare them for leadership skills for Bunyangabu district that become operational effective July 2017.

He blasted Bintamanya when he said that the issue of mentoring leaders was not the district chairman’s role.

The speaker Hon.Stella Kyorampe subjected the issue to voting whether the chairman should repeat the appointments or confirm the nominees.

42 councilors voted but 32 supported the district chairman’s appointments while 10 opposed it.
