MASINDI: Authorities in Kyatiiri town council in Masindi district have sought the intervention of the district chief administrative officer Phiona Sanyu into their   matter with its former senior assistant accountant Jolly Tuhaise regarding  the town council’s chairs.

This is contained in the letter dated September 27th 2022 addressed to Sanyu by the town council senior assistant town clerk Ibrahim Nasur after Tuhaise who was recently transferred to Pakanyi Sub County left the town council with 20 plastic chairs allegedly belonging to the town   council.

In a letter that this website has seen, Nasur claims that on September 23rd 2022, Tuhaise went to the town council offices and took the chairs without his knowledge. Nasur adds that he had been pestering Tuhaise to handover office to the new senior assistant accountant Susan Kabonesa following her transfer and she refused.

Nasur also accuses Tuhaise of failure to provide financial reports for the 2021/2022 financial year among other accusations and he now wants the CAO to take punitive action against her.


Tuhaise admits taking the chairs Nasur referred to in the letter to the Chief administrative officer. She however clarified that the chairs belong to Pakanyi Sub County which borrowed them to Kyatiri town council.

She denied taking the chairs to her home saying she returned them to Pakanyi Sub County.

”What I know the chairs where procured by Pakanyi sub county but Kyatiiri town council had just borrowed them,” Tuhaise said.

Frank Asiimwe, the chairperson Pakanyi sub county says the controversial chairs belong to his sub county but Kyatiri town had borrowed them for its inauguration event day last year.

He added that the chairs have been returned to the sub county.

We could not get a comment from the CAO on the matter at the time of publishing this story.
