Jinja ready for city status, district leaders tell government
Jinja District chairperson, Titus Kisambira, has said the district ‘has whatever it takes’ to become a city.
His proclamation comes after government finalized plans of elevating nine municipalities, including Fort Portal, Mbarara, Hoima, Lira, Arua, Gulu, Mbale, Jinja and Entebbe to cities. This elevation, government believes, will promote regional development.
Kisambira says they received resolutions from all sub-counties in the district accepting to be part of the city, which they passed.
