Kabale Councilors Want former district Engineer Interdicted Over Shody Work
Kabale District councilors has accused the Kabale district chairperson Patric Besigye Keihwa of failing to interdict the former Kabale district engineer James Kiganda following the shoddy work he did on the district roads.
Kiganda has long been called to appear before the Public Accounts Committee [PAC] to explain how money was used but has never turned up to the do the explanation.
Councilors who include Julius Barutsya and Norah Twenda claim that they are tired of calling Kiganda in to the meeting but have suggested to interdict him.
They also accuse the chairperson of keeping a deaf ear and not intervening to arrest the embattled Kiganda.
On February 6, 2015 Kabale district Local Government contracted Concrete Projects Limited, to renovate Kibanda Health centre II in Kamwezi at a cost of Shs 17 million.
However, the contractor installed wooden doors with substandard locks instead of the metallic doors that were initially planned and budgeted for.
However the district chairperson Patric Besigye Keihwa explained he is not keeping a deaf ear but he is follows the law that provides for Kiganda a condition of a fear hearing which Kiganda requested for through their lawyers of Twikirize and Company advocates when he was last called to appear before PAC on the 2 of May, 2018.
Keihwa advised the council to wait and they let the law does its part but promises to have the issue solved very soon.
He also says that as the chairperson of the district, he is entitled to act according to what the PAC will have submitted in the report about the matter.
