THE two top conflicting political figures in Manafwa district have decided to burry the hatchet and work for development.

The LC5 chairman, Charles Walimbwa and his rival, Sylvester Wanjusi Wasieba, made the commitment during the district end-of-year party recently.

“We are not enemies but disagreed a bit,” Walimbwa said.

“No one will build Manafwa district unless we, the sons and daughters of the soil, come together,” he added.

Walimbwa promised to step down for Wasieba if the latter mended relations with him.

Wasieba revealed that he had no problem with Walimbwa and would work with him. He had accompanied his wife, who is the district’s finance secretary, to the party.

Wasieba and Walimbwa contested for the LC5 chairman post in February last year.

After being trounced, Wasieba lodged an appeal in the High Court but withdrew it later.

Wasieba represented Bubulo West and Mbale Municipality in the sixth and seventh parliaments but was later thrown out for lack of academic qualifications.

Mbale resident district commissioner Hajji Abbas Seguya asked the leaders to focus on developing the district, especially in the education sector.

John Okolimo, the administrative officer, attended.
