Sironko LCV Chairperson Herbert Mulekwa intends to sue some councillors at Sironko District Local Government for alleged defamation.
Through his lawyers Makada and Partners, Mulekwa accuses the Councillors of hatching a plan to have him impeached on allegations of engaging in corruption tendencies something he denies. Mulekwa says the councillors also claim he has an invisible hand in the District Service Commission work. Mulekwa says the allegations are born out of sheer malice and aimed at tainting his image.
Allan Muduku the Councillor representing Bukise Sub County at the District has acknowledged receipt of the notice for intention to sue. Muduku says the impeachment of Chairman Mulekwa was supported by 21 out of the 45 councillors. He also accuses Mulekwa of failing to lay before Council the 2019/2020 financial year District Budget.
Ali Madoi the Councillor representing Buyobo Sub County at the District says corruption is rampant in the District lands office. Madoi accuses Mulekwa of being at the centre of such corruption tendencies.
Abdu Magombe the Youth Chairperson for Buteza Sub County is in support of impeachment proceedings against Chairman Mulekwa. Magombe cites the mysterious torching of the District Production Offices where no explanation has been given on the cause of the fire.
