We have today a nice Saturday when the UPDF supposed to be deployed and take control of security towards the end of the General Election. Well, in Masaka NRM-Organization promised towns-people an NRM-Supporter’s if they shunned the campaign rally of Go-Forward and Hon. Amama Mbabazi campaign venue in town. While the NRM members who cried out for not being paid not to show-up somewhere. Shows the lacking mentality of NRM to pay their own and keep their promises! Yet again I guess! While the Police had to throw tear-gas and shot live rubber-bullets towards the crowd because of the missing funds of UGX 100millions to them.
The Go-Forward had a rally in Masaka 9th November 2015 when they held a rally at the Masaka Golf Course and they reacted today 9th January. Technically two months after the rally and now they wondered where the money they was promised to get wasn’t arriving. That is slow service delivery!
Something worth reporting is that Musician Eddy Kenzo and the Ugandan Cranes Football Team sponsored and was charitable towards the Masaka Hospital with a facelift and upgrade on the 7th January. They donated to Masaka female ward and this was done through a charity match!
And something that would be lost in the wind about Masaka is this is just in today on 9th January 2016:
“Masaka Municipal Councils have received financing from the World Bank towards the cost of the Uganda Support to Municipal infrastructure Development Programme (USMID) for the Civil works of Infrastructure projects and Consultancy Services of supervision of road works”. Well, World Bank has to finance this for Masaka and not the local tax-base, wonder who is financing the missing funds for the shunning the campaign rally that was in 9th November 2015…? That is why they have more missed funds and why the NRM-O in the area had the reaction today.
While also the Masaka District Local government had to tell the civil servants how to allocate the money at a hotel yesterday 8th January 2016: “Regional Data Quality Assessment (DQA) at Mariaflo Hotel in Masaka District with a call on participants to appreciate data for improved service delivery through proper planning and resource allocation”. That must be why World Bank has the wishes to finance the civil works in parts of Masaka. That must be golden.
Think that is enough of Masaka today! Peace.
