MASINDI: National Resistance Movement – NRM top offcials including Dr. Chris Baryomusi the NRM vice chairperson for western Uganda, Dr. Tanga Odoi the NRM Electoral Commission Chairperson, Kabakumba Laboni Matsiko the NRM chairperson Masindi district, and others yesterday met the Masindi district councilors at Kolping Hotel to harminize on the current situation of Masindi district.

The meeting followed the news which made round on different media houses over the impeachment of Hon. Cosmas Byaruhanga the Masindi district chairperson. Hon. Issa Balinda the male councilor representing Central Division to the district recently tabled a motion in the district council to impeach the district chairperson over failure to monitor government programs, missing in the office during duty hourss and others.

Last month, the Masindi district members of parliament including Hon. Joab Businge the MP Masindi Municipality, Hon. Kenneth Kiiza Nyendwoha the MP Bujenje Constituency, Hon. Ronald Aled Akugizibwe the MP Buruli and Hon. Florence Asiimwe the Woman MP Masindi district convened a meeting with the councilors to harmonize on the issue of which they agreed if the district chairperson is ready to reconcile with them.

The meeting seemed to have yielded no fruits following the intervention of the top NRM officials over the same issue. Dr Chris Baryomunsi the NRM vice chairperson for western Uganda asked the Masindi district leaders to unite and push for developmental issues rather than fighting each other, he noted that this will not lead to the development of the area.

Baryomunsi also said that the petitions that have been made by leaders and the district councilors to various offices are petty and driven by fights against one another for selfish interest.

The NRM vice chairperson for western Uganda further noted that human beings by nature make mistakes, which the leaders in Masindi should not capitalize on to fight each other instead should unite together and push for development of their areas and issues including the price of sugarcane, construction of new structures at Masindi hospital, and others.

Baryomunsi also noted that fighting amongst leaders will not benefit the people of Masindi and instead advised them to use the time to mobilize and sensitize people towards development of district.

In the same meeting, Hon. Cosmas Byaruhanga the Masindi district chairperson admitted that there is a fight at the district, but says the only way to over come it is through reconciliation which shall take the district forward rather than fighting.

The meeting comes a-week after the district speaker Moses Kirya delivered a petition to the minister of local government by some district councilors for impeachment of district chairperson Cosmas Byaruhanga citing incompetence and abuse of office.
