Kabarole District Council has passed a resolution barring members of parliament without accountability reports from addressing council sittings.

The motion was moved by Busoro Sub County Councilor Hon. Richard Nyakaana and seconded by Hon. Karambi Sub County councilor, order advice Joseph Mashuhuko at the District Headquarters Kitumba on Friday.

Nyakaana said that council would only entertain speeches from MPs who have accountability reports on what they have lobbied for the district.

Nyakaana gave the example of the Burahya County MP Hon. Steven Kagwera who he said comes to council without any accountability reports on what he has lobbied and done for the people.

The decision to ban MPs came after the woman MP Hon.Victoria Businge Rusoke delivered a comprehensive report on some of her achievements and accountability of what she had already done and lobbied for the district.

Hon. Rusoke highlighted on some of the things she had lobbied including 60 mattresses for health centers, visit maize seeds, coffee seedlings, coffee and rice hullers, a tractor, 10 scholarships, shs 100m for SACCOs, trainings for female councilors among others.

About the shs 30m presidential pledge, the MP noted that it had been distributed to six SACCOs with each receiving shs 5m.
