FDC Campaign Convoy traversed the Gomba and Butambala District; Youth show’s their local craft; Brief look at the Good-Governance-Level in the Gomba District
Today the People’s President traversed the districts of Gomba and Butambala. The FDC Campaign convoy went to the districts and had rallies in towns and villages. Meeting the people and also saw the youth’s ability to produce, like they made their own type of gun. Also other activities that a certain Aspirant is having issues with affiliations and not sure if he is Go-Forward or FDC.
As the Youth did in Kanoni in Gomba District and the pictures show their craft as they showed it Dr. Kizza Beisgye!
Butambala MP Aspirant Muwanga Kivumbi known to be Go Foward has faced it rough today as he tried to follow Kizza Besigye everywhere. Kizza Besigye campaigning in Butambala district; FDC supporters in the district kept on reminding him why; why he was a part of the Go-Forward and still tried to be hround Kizza Besigye. FDC has got a flag bearer by the names of Moses Kasule in Butambala!
At one point Kivumbe would plead to Kizza Besigye to tell our supporters to allow him seat on a platform. Besigye was a gentleman and later allowed him to address the audience. At the same time telling that FDC Flag-bearer in the district we’re Kasule. Kivumbi should explain to you where he belongs? Go-Forward or FDC? We know some of his colleagues have decided to move with FDC.
Pretense before the FDC campaign in Gomba District:
NRM couldn’t help to stifle the local transport and movement for crowds for the FDC in a bitch move. NRM and Mzee invited all the Boda-Boda drivers in Gomba District to come to the Kisozi on the day that FDC happen to have campaigns in the district. So noble of you Yoweri!
I will now go into certain governmental issues in Gomba District as the government issues haven’t always followed procedures for procurement and also done it unaccounted for. So there is questionable behavior from civil servants. Also delayed works in the district and that it still is understaffed. Take a look!
Hiring and signing public contracts unauthorized procurement:
“In eighteen (18) cases representing 36% of the sampled contracts with a total value of UGX 229,699,462/-, the audit team revealed that funds were certified by officers other than the Accounting Officer and without evidence of delegated authority” (PPDA, 2013).
Good Governance in Gomba district:
Unaccounted funds: “An amount of UGX.70,097,792 remained unaccounted for at the time of audit contrary to the regulations. Consequently, I was unable to confirm that the funds were utilized for the intended purposes” (OAG, 2015). Unaccountable advances: “a total of UGX.45,035,492 advanced to staff to execute council activities remained unaccounted by the close of the financial year” (OAG, 2015).
Delayed Staff house at Maddu:
“A contract was awarded to a private firm to construct a 3 unit two bed roomed staff house at Maddu HC IV under phase 1 which included substructure, roof, external walls, windows and external doors, internal walls and partitions, internal doors and internal finishing. The contract price was UGX.50,102,034 of which UGX.27,880,983(46%) had been paid at the time of audit. Although the contract completion date was 16th July 2014, inspection of this project in October 2014 revealed that the structure was not completed” (OAG, 2015).
“The District has a staff establishment of 419 positions. However, out of the 419 approved posts, only 256 posts were filled, leaving a balance of 163 posts vacant, representing 39% of the approved posts” (OAG, 2015).
I think that is enough for today. Peace.
