Mukono municipal council passed a resolution to buy a vehicle to mayor of Mukono George Kagimu worth 200 millions as a protest to area member of Parliament Betty Nambooze Bakireke whom they accuse of interfering in council affairs.
According to councilor who passed this resolution said that they did as a protest to show Nambooze that they are tired of giving them directives on various council proceedings.
They explained that as councilors they know a vehicle is not the current priority for Mukono municipality but also they are tired of every time getting directives from Nambooze.
Councilors argue that Nambooze should stick to her role as a member of parliament and leave mayor Kagimu to perform his powers as mayor of Mukono Municipality.
While passing this resolution only six councilors rejected the motion and 18 supported it which now means tax payers are going to spend 200 hundred millions on mayor Kagimu vehicle.
Those who opposed the resolution led by Kalinda Jimmy said that why should municipal authority by three vehicles in a space of one when service delivery to local communities is still very low.
Some councilors who backed Kalinda explained that Mukono lacks public toilets starting from Seeta town arguing that they could have first considered such priorities rather than luxuries things like vehicles for leaders.
Those who supported the motion in council meeting said that the current car for mayor has become old and he needs a new vehicle to ease his movement.
This resolution means that as municipal authority could have bout three vehicles worth about 600 millions in a space of one and half years.
The first vehicle is a double cabin given to municipal planner, the second one totaling to about 150 millions will be for town clerk and third vehicle of 200 millions will be for municipal mayor.
