By Chris M Bruno

KAGADI: The Deputy Resident District Commissioner {DRDC} Kagadi Benjamin Tumusiime has warned the public against using the Parish Development Model {PDM} funds for luxury.

Tumusiime made the warning while addressing group committee members, parish chiefs and ward agents from 11 sub-counties and town councils at freedom tree in Kagadi town council Kagadi District on Wednesday.

Each parish in Kagadi District received 25 million shillings for the first phase in the country wide development aimed at deriving 39% households from poverty.

Tumusiime adds that the parish development model fund is a plunge from President Museven meant to develop the poor people in villages and not the rich.
