The minister made the remark in Moroto town on Monday, while on a monitoring trip to facilitate the mobilization of three districts which had failed to submit group files namely Moroto, Katakwi and Kole districts.

The State Minister for Gender and Cultural Affairs M/s Peace Mutuuzo has said the government is geared at adequately delivering services to the people.

The minister made the remark in Moroto town on Monday, while on a monitoring trip to facilitate the mobilization of three districts which had failed to submit group files namely Moroto, Katakwi and Kole districts.

Other issues were to assess progress, identify bottlenecks and also make recommendations for effective implementation of the Uganda Women Entrepreneurship-UWEP programme.

Moroto top district leaders, women chairpersons and internal security officers among others attended the meeting.

Mutuuzo advised local leaders to abandon the comfort of their offices and stay with communities in the villages to help address their plight.

"Reports indicate poor service delivery has been in existent for decades, an issue we should now abandon," she noted.

During the meeting, several leaders expressed concern on service delivery claiming that they had just assumed office.

The District Chairperson Moroto Andrew Keem Napaja urged the registered groups in his area to ensure that the money received be paid back in time.

"This is a revolving fund meant to empower women that should not be mismanaged," he said adding that the time has come to take the society from a peasantry to a middle income status.

He congratulated the minister for her appointment among the 400 members of parliament in the 10th parliament.

 

The Resident District Commissioner Moroto Peterken Lochap said Karimojong are hardworking people.

 

"These people outside there are not lazy as per say." he noted.

Lochap asked different stakeholders to understand the Karimojong then help them move.

 

He said, "The introduction of dams and valley tanks had reduced migrations including conflicts in Karamoja adding that more needs to be done for the people in the region."

 

Last financial year 2015/16, the gender ministry under the UWEP disbursed institutional funds to districts, meant to facilitate the mobilization and selection of the most deserving women groups to benefit from the programme.
