Kigezi Veterans Petition Parliament Over representation
Veterans from Greater Kabale districts have joined their colleagues who are petitioning parliament to have special representatives at local government level for better service delivery.
This was revealed at a meeting of all veteran coordinators from Greater kabale held today at kabale Rukiiko Hall, chaired by Jomo Rukyenesa Kashana from the Uganda Veterans Assistance Board in charge of south western Uganda.
Sergeant Emmanuel Akankwatsa said due to lack of representatives, they are not benefiting from government programs.
Meanwhile, Jomo Rukyenesa Kashana noted that veterans should be patient since they are having an independent ministry that looks into their issues and their request will be solved.
