Parliament on Wednesday shelved the inclusion of the new districts of Kubala and Manjiya in the constitution, due to disagreement over the location of their headquarters, report Henry Mukasa and Milton Olupot.

Parliament was considering the Constitutional Amendment Bill No. 2.

Kubala district is curved from Arua, constituting Maracha and Terego counties while Manafa constitutes Bubulo and Manjiya counties.

Maracha MP Alex Onzima has locked horns with Ayivu MP Bakoko Bakoru over the location of Kubala headquarters.

While Bakoko is in favour of Kubala in Terego county, Onzima vehemently opposed the idea, saying the new position is against the Arua district council resolution that called for the creation of the new district, first in 1999 and in February this year.

“The Arua district council resolved in 1999 and communicated to the minister of local government that the new district headquarters should be in Nyadri. Why change now?” Onzima asked. Nyadri is located in Maracha county.
