According to Iganga district chairman Patrick Kayemba, the MPs led by their chairman Dr. Michael Bukenya had notified local authorities to prepare and receive them that day.

Iganga local leaders on Saturday sat for over four hours at Iganga hospital conference room waiting in vain for legislators on the health services committee.

According to Iganga district chairman Patrick Kayemba, the MPs led by their chairman Dr. Michael Bukenya had notified local authorities to prepare and receive them that day.

Kayemba, who arrived at 9.00am kept perusing through newspapers as he chatted with the Resident District Commissioner Pulikeria Muhindo Mwiine.

“I cannot believe this kind of situation. These MPs seem not to value local leaders at all and therefore waste our time like this,” Kayemba said.

Mwiine observed that MPs like any other responsible people should learn to communicate in time if anything changes in their plans.

“I am really pissed with this way of doing things. Imagine MPs making me sit here idle for over two hours,” she lamented.

Dr. David Muwanguzi, the district health officer kept pacing up and down the corridors of the health facility to check on medics on duty.

“They informed us that the MPs would first go to Mbale on Friday then pass via Iganga hospital as they travel to Kamuli,” Muwanguzi narrated to New Vision.

At 1.00pm, it was unanimously agreed that the meeting supposed to be chaired by Kayemba be closed since the visitors had not showed up.
