Nathan Tandeka, the Head teacher at Kanyaryeru Secondary School has also abandoned the school to contest for the District LC5 Chairman seat.

The Chief Accountant Pamera believes most of these are being driven by higher wages at the top, and she fears more district workers might follow suit.

“There is still a lot of time before 2016; we are already feeling the dent. If this trend keeps up, service delivery in this district could be seriously crippled,” she said.

She is concerned that those who resigned had served the district for a long time and were performing great, and replacing them wouldn’t be easy. She also wants government to intervene and save the situation.

When Chimpreports contacted Sheila Mwiine, she told us, “I have served Kiruhura for close to 20 years now, and I have observed that most of our leaders in Parliament are not doing what we send them to do.  I feel Kiruhura deserves better, and I obviously can’t do much here as an education officer.” She is hoping to unseat the incumbent area MP Hon Beatrice Rusaniya.

Muguli Michael on the other hand told us that Col. Fred Mwesigye forgot his role as the Nyabushozi MP to the extent that he had turned Kampala into his permanent area of residence.

Meanwhile, the Kiruhura MP seat is expected to be tighter than ever, as two other giants Dr Charles Mubangizi and Mr Genensio who participated in the previous election, have also declared intentions to take part in the race.
