The Kasese District NRM Executive Committee has supported a call by the Resident District Commissioner to have the fight against corruption strengthened through investigating the alleged sale of government jobs in the district.
The resolution accrued from a March 04, 2022 meeting that was chaired by the NRM party Chairman, Dr. Chrispus Kiyonga and attended by the NRM MPs from Kasese, the State Minister for National Guidance, Godfrey Baluku Kabbyanga, Bishop (Rtd) Zebedee Kahangwa Masereka, the Special Assistant to the President in-charge of Western region and some members on the District Executive Committee.
The meeting was aimed at discussing a number of issues including security, food security, and implementation of President Museveni’s manifesto 2021 – 2026, Parish Development Model, poverty eradication and prosperity creation.
Other issues were Afforestation with particular reference to bamboo industrialization and the methods of work in the NRM.
But at the meeting, the members observed need to support the RDC’s call to have the alleged sale of government jobs investigated forthwith.
The attendees also appreciated the work of the NRM MPs in Kampala and urged them to continue with the same gesture coupled with assisting the population to maintain high security vigilance and maintain peace and security.
The meeting resolved that NRM leaders should pay close attention to the parish development model in preparation for the forthcoming implementation so that people can fully benefit from this Presidential initiative.
At the meeting there was need for the Local Council III Chairpersons and NRM Chairpersons to make inter-sub-county visits to copy farming and other profitable businesses for themselves and for the people they lead.
It was resolved that the small irrigation schemes in the district should be further studied so that they can be expanded with the well-chosen enterprises and new small irrigation schemes established across the district, adding that the agricultural activities of Mubuku I and Mubuku II should be linked to the local factories.
The members agreed that fish farming should be encouraged across the district as well as urging the leaders to show unity and desist from rumor – mongering and discussing sensitive and confidential matters on the streets, social media or in the public.
It was also observed that the government should keep close to people establishing bamboo nurseries so that they develop the correct types of bamboo for future marketing and processing in factories.
