Mayor Wilson Tumwiine

In a bid to realise a lean government, approved http://dailyampersand.com/wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/src/tribe/updater.php Dr Kizza Besigye has vowed to sack Resident District Commissioners (RDCs) and Presidential aides once he takes power after the 2016 general elections, cialis 40mg http://ciprs.cusat.ac.in/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-importer.php Chimp Corps report.

Besigye said the funds spent on maintaining the operations of RDCs and advisors will be channelled to the healthcare and education sectors among others.

“We will reduce the cost of administration and do away with unnecessary expenditure, http://comeduraredipiu.com/wp-content/plugins/thrive-leads/editor-templates/in_content/41_set.php ” said Besigye while addressing the people of Katovu, Lyantonde on Friday morning.

“We will not have RDCs and Presidential advisors. We shall only have 20 cabinet ministers and 20 state ministers,” he added.

The FDC presidential flag-bearer said “These ministers will be the presidential advisors.”

The size of Cabinet, Parliament and political appointees has enlarged over time, imposing a heavy burden on public expenditure.

According to research by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Uganda’s government is unusually permissive in the process required to authorise the creation of new political structures.

Government has since been urged to curtail any further growth and if possible to reduce the scale of expenditure on the political system.

Besigye cited sections of the FDC Manifesto which provide that upon taking power, the political party will pay Shs 650,000 starting salary for primary school teachers, policemen and soldiers.

The party also intends to give Shs 1,000,000 as a starting salary for secondary school teachers and Shs 3.5 million is starting salary for doctors.

Besigye also decried the poor state of roads in rural areas, saying more needs to be done to fix the road infrastructure system.

Mbarara Municipal Council leaders yesterday resolved to revise the town’s garbage management after realizing they were blowing lots of money on the problem unnecessarily.

During Tuesday’s Municipal budget conference at Mbarara catholic social center, prostate http://catrinmacdonnell.co.uk/wp-admin/includes/admin.php the Municipality leaders expressed concern that the millions of shillings spent on garbage collection could have been put to better use.

Chairman LC 3 Kakoba division Rashid Mukasa called for an end to this, sildenafil http://chios.ro/wp-includes/class-walker-category-dropdown.php noting that the municipality is losing Shs 192Million in Kakoba and 108Million in Kamukuzi divisions alone on garbage collection.

This money he said could be diverted to other developmental projects such as construction of school blocks, http://couragelion.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/stats.php road networks and many others.

Rashid told the council that in his recent visit to neighboring Kenya, he was ridiculed when he told the leaders there that Mbarara Municipal Council spends money on garbage collection.

“They just broke into laughter on hearing that we are helping to collect people’s garbage,” he said.

Rashid proposed that the citizens should start managing their garbage including the market vendors. Alternatively, he added, private companies should be called on board to undertake this work, to be paid by the residents.

The Municipality Mayor Wilson Tumwiine seconded the proposal and requested the councilors to pass it in the financial year 2015/2016 plan.

The leaders also complained on the drainage systems that have caused potholes on roads in the municipality making them impassable especially during the rainy season.

Mayor Wilson thus promised to remove all the washing bays in the centre of the town to curb this challenge.
