KAMULI district councillors last Friday censured the speaker, accusing him of forgery, incompetence and arrogance. In a session chaired by Charles Katarikawe, a commissioner from the local government ministry, 25 out of the 30 councillors voted Tomas Kategere Ndimukika out of office.

Basing on an over 16- page petition read by persons with disabilities councillor Julius Wakibi, the councillors said Kategere behaved in an uncouth manner and forged their signatures to embezzle sh1m from the Uganda Local Governments Association in April 2007.

They said each councillor was to get sh20,000 for a council session in which Kategere would sensitise them on the association.

The rest of the money was for hiring the venue for the seminar and buying drinks.

“Kategere has practiced insubordination. He has been visiting FM radio stations in Busoga and Buganda to abuse the President, district chairperson Stephen Mubiru and chief administrative officer Charles Okello over incompetence to implement Government projects,” the petition added.

Wakibi further read that Kategere had been manning a briefcase organisation which conned desperate people of their money. They were seeking to travel overseas for kyeyo.

The motion was moved by the finance and administration secretary and also district youth councillor Samuel Bamwole.

Bamwole was nominated as speaker and was unopposed. When reached for a comment, Kategere blamed his woes on corrupt leaders who he said funded the councillors to suffocate him. He called it political persecution.
