The Inspector General of Government, Jotham Tumwesigye, has dismissed the Rukungiri town council tender board.
In a two-page letter dated February 27, addressed to the Rukungiri mayor, Charles Makuru, the IGG ordered that a new board be appointed as soon as possible.
The dismissal follows a petition by Rukungiri transporters who lost a tender to manage the Rukungiri taxi park. The tender was awarded to Rukungiri Taxi Operators and Drivers Association (RUTODA).
The IGG said he had dismissed the board due to lack of qualifications as required by law.
Out of four members of the board, only one has the qualifications while the rest do not have â€˜Aâ€™ Level or its equivalent.
Those dismissed include the board chairperson, Mrs. Milly Mbabazi, Jonathan Mpireki and Joseline Mpirirwe.
Mr. Sabbath Sunday is the only person who survived the axe because he is a degree holder.
Meanwhile, the IGG has allowed RUTODA to run the park until the end of the year.
His action has, however, been opposed by the Makaru who favours Kizahi Cooperative Society.
Makuru, has since clashed with his town clerk Samuel Komunda accusing him of supporting the IGG and RUTODA to undermine him, an allegation Komunda denies.
