The outbreak of Covid 19,financial reforms and lack of staff supervisory vehicles have been singled out as some of the challenges that affected the implementation of the Rukungiri municipal council budget in the previous term.

The rukungiri Municipality mayor his worship Charles Makuru who spoke to us at his office on Tuesday noted that the introduction of financial reforms directing Municipal Councils to bank the revenue collected as consolidated fund has made planning hard because the council initially budgeted for the local revenue collections.

The issue of bus-park and taxi-park re-centralization also reduced revenue collections for the Municipality.

Makuru added that inadequate transport sources inform of vehicles for municipal staff has made the supervision of some projects difficult.

Rukungiri municipal council for the last five years managed to score some achievements like the installation of powerful solar power security lights along Karegyesa road, Construction of abattoirs at Nyamayenje and Kagunga markets, upgrading Kitimba Health Centre 11 to 111 as well as establishing a micro scale irrigation scheme in Southern division to improve food production

Makuru commended the outgoing councilors for the effort and developmental ideas rendered to the council and challenged newly sworn in councilors to be the ambassadors of their electorate through raising issues affecting communities for proper possible solutions and urged them to cooperate, be vibrant and work hard in order to have a successful council and a developed municipality.
