Residents of Kibaale have welcomed the sh31.5b budget, saying it will solve many problems. Jane Kugonza, a
businesswoman and resident of Bubango in Kibaale, said with the increased money allocated to production, especially the
planned purchases of seedlings for coffee, maize, vanilla, trees and cereals, the farmers expect to reap a lot from their harvests.
For Stella Tumuhirwe, a resident of Kasimbi in Kibaale district, injecting money into road construction was a good
thing. The budget passed by the district council last week put emphasis on commercial farming, education, healthcare,
feeder roads improvement and safe water provision.
Presenting the budget during a 41-member council meeting held at Kibaale district headquarters on Friday,
Gertrude Katusiime, the district secretary for finance, said the budget will be financed by locally raised revenue,
conditional government transfers and donor funding.
Peter Rugumba, the district councillor representing Nyamarwa sub-county, moved the motion to approve the budget.
John Kyaboona, the Kibaale District Education Officer, said schools that need upgrade are Bwikya Islamic, Bucuya,
Kahyoro, Buhanda and St. Peters Buronzi primary schools.
Peter Amara, the district chairperson, is optimistic that the budget will help to spur service delivery.
