MAYUGE - The president of the Uganda District Council Speakers’ Association, Moses Max Mukisa, has advised fellow speakers and councillors to prioritise education so as to improve service delivery.
Mukisa, who is also the Mayuge district speaker, said having a speaker that is enlightened adds more value to the council’s work and services, which benefits the public.
He made the remarks while meeting the district at in Mayuge town council on Thursday, to prepare drawing agendas and goals of their council this year.
“It is easy to transform the districts or sub-counties if councilors prioritise education and sets up income-generating projects in the homes,” Mukisa advised.
During the meeting, the Mayuge LC5 chairperson, Haji Umar Bongo Muwaya, appreciated Mukisa’s initiative of inviting fellow councillors to discuss and prioritise development issues.
The district vice-chairperson, Ruth Kibowa, said such meetings and interaction of politicians help boost debates in councils.
She challenged technical officers headed by the chief administrative officer to always avoid bureaucracy in implementing the council’s resolutions.
