More than 10 million shillings was on Saturday raised at a fundraising aimed at completing Bumasikye Sub County Offices in Muwanda village, Mbale District.
The Sub County authorities have been operating in a rented structure which belongs to a cooperative society. The structure’s roof was recently blown away by rains that pounded the area. This called for completion of new Sub County offices hence the need for the fundraising.
Speaking at the fundraising, Trade Minister State Minister Werikhe also the Bungokho South MP underscored the need for leaders at various levels to put their energies in lobbying for services for the people they represent. Werikhe said that many leaders often engage in politicking at the wrong time. He said this leaves many people languishing in abject poverty.
Dennis Washirekho the Bumasikye Sub County LCIII Chairperson said they have completion of the Sub County offices will save them from rent fees they have been incurring on a monthly basis.
