- I request the Ministry of Local Government to explain whether properties of mother districts should be shared with the new ones or not.
This follows William Kaija, the Kyenjojo LC5 chairpersonâ€™s views that he will not share any item with the newly created distict of Kyegegwa which has been carved out of Kyenjojo. He, for instance, says the district has got only 19 motor-vehicles which cannot be shared.
However, I believe some of those vehicles can be shared with the new district to start with as it mobilises its own. Kaija should remember how Kyenjojo and Kamwenge districts raised dust over sharing property with their former mother district Kabarole. He should recall that these belongings have been acquired using the resources from both Mwenge and Kyaka constituencies. Let us split in peace but not in pieces.

Whoâ€™s behind this road menace?
- I always wonder what goes on in the heads of the people who are charged with road repairs in Kampala city and I do not know whether what goes on here is the same thing that happens in other countries. Why do these people always wait for the rainy season before they can patch up the potholed sections of the road? Why do they dig up all the roads in Kampala and wait for the rain water to first sink into the base before they can patch up the dug up sections?
Look at the roads like Archer Road, Upper Kololo Terrace, Acacia Avenue in Kololo and Kira Road between Kamwokya and Mulago round-about. All these roads were dug up about two weeks ago, the potholes widened and deepened and then â€˜the expertsâ€™ abandoned the work, probably to wait for the rains. Now every time it rains, the holes fill up and became a menace to the road users. Why canâ€™t they do the patching up as soon as they dig up the holes or is it another ploy by these quacks to increase on their pay cheque?
When will Ugandans ever wake up and demand accountability for the services they pay for through the nose only to get a raw deal? May God help us!
