WORKING for reconciliation will enhance development, out-going Jinja district LC5 chairman Fred Gume has told his successor, Hannington Basakana.

Speaking after handing over office to Basakana last Tuesday, Gume said without ending divisions created during campaign time, the district would fail to achieve its goals.

“The electorate expects you to improve their living standards but to realise this, you need to co-operate with all councillors and civil servants,” he said.

Gume said his council secured a sh500m African Development Bank grant for road maintenance due to proper accountability, while the district started getting a monthly sh20m as loyalties from the electricity generation company.

Jinja Chief magistrate Cissy Mudhasi swore in Basakana together with 24 councillors at the district headquarters.
The councillors later elected former secretary for education Agnes Nabirye the district speaker and Timothy Dhikusooka as her deputy.

Basakana appointed Butagaya sub-county councillor Moses Batwala his deputy and secretary for community development.

Former district vice-chairperson Rose Kakaire was named secretary for education and health, Juma Muyita secretary for production and Christine Nsungu the secretary for finance.
Basakana said he would run the works department himself. He asked the executive to be result-oriented or risk dismissal.
