Municipal Councilors threaten to call I.G.G over Kisoro land Scandals
A section of Kisoro Municipal councilors have threatened to engage the office of Inspectorate of Government (I.G.G) and the Anti-corruption unit following continuous allegations against the town clerk on land issues.
The proposal was tabled by the Gasiza LCIV councilor Ronald Ntiba who said municipal properties especially land is being handled in a manner that raises questions.
Ntiba’s proposal was seconded by the Kisoro Municipal deputy speaker Joachim Hashakimana and the Nyamagana ward LCIV woman councilor, Uwomugisha Anne.
According to the three councilors, the Kisoro town clerk Sharifa Nakintu has failed to account to the honorable councilors because she has failed to explain which parts of municipal land have been lost to ghost owners.
They also noted that illegal containers have springing up within the town.
“We need the intervention of the IGG because things are beyond us. The town clerk has failed to give us clear information so we need help from experts who can help us know where our land has gone”, councilors exclaimed
Councilor for the elderly Erastus Musabyimana said councilors should desist from infighting and blaming one another but instead delay in pushing for such a proposal that will expose other weaknesses in the council and the municipality at large.
The Nyagashinge LCIV councilor Michael Tumwizere seconded Musabyimana’s submission by asking councilors to combine efforts and resolve municipal matters.
Woman councilor representing elderly in the Municipality Eunice Rwerekane, asked councilors to repent and avoid tabling matters aiming at disorganizing the council.
Am not afraid – Town Clerk says
Kisoro Municipal town clerk Sharifa Nakintu asked councilors to always analyze issues before deciding on the course of action.
She added that she has no problem with being dragged to court if found guilty but asked to give a detailed report over mayors garden in the next council.
The Municipal Speaker Geoffrey Nkuruziza Nsubuga decided to rule that the matter be discussed in committees before the final decision.
