Kasese District Council has approved a budget estimates for the Financial 2021/2022 worth shillings Ninety Seven Billion Eight Hundred Seventy Two Million Seven Hundred Fifty Three Thousand (97,872,753,000)

While presenting the budget estimates for approval to the Council sitting today and chaired by its Speaker, Obed Tsotswana, Jetress Ithungu, the District Vice Chairperson, who also doubles as the Secretary for Finance, Planning and Administration, explained that local revenue will constitute about 4.0%, a reduction from 6% in the 2020/2021 financial year while government transfers will account for 90.5% as donor disbursements will constitute about 5.4%.

Ithungu said last financial year, they had budget for shillings Eighty Six Billion Four Hundred Ten Million Six Hundred Twenty One Thousand (86,410,621,000) but it was not realized due to the Covid-19 disruptions of markets and other sources, low returns from loyalties due to reduced production levels at Hima Cement and failure to pay by key stakeholders such as Mweya Safari Lodge.

 In his address, the District Chairperson, Eliphaz Muhindi Bukombi, appealed to the community in Kasese to strongly observe the Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures arguing that the virus has become stronger than it was before in the first phase.
