This time, the war for the Division headquarters for south division has erupted between
Chairman Jomo is battling Kajubi who is the sitting Mayor for Mbarara City South division following Minister Magyezi’s guidance which he gave out on 3rd July 2020 that south division headquarters be put at Nyamitanga formerly a municipal division.
In this case Minister also guided that where the Division headquarters are put, the sitting LC3 Chairman will be the interim Division Mayor for that city division until next general elections.
Mbarara City South Division is composed of three former municipal divisions and these include Nyamitanga, Nyakayojo and Kakoba Divisions.
During the stakeholders meeting held at at Nyakayojo Division yesterday Tuesday, there was a mixed reactions from the people of Nyakayojo Division led by their Chairman Jomo Mugabe informed City Clerk Theophilus Tibihika and the City Mayor Robert Kakyebezi claiming that they want Mbarara City Headquarters be put in Nyakayojo not Nyamitanga as the Minister had earlier guided.
According to Jomo as the host of the meeting, he said that Nyamitanga does not qualify for City Division Headquarters because it has no enough premises to house a full council.
He added that Nyakayojo has got what it takes to have Mbarara City South Division Headquarters.
Jomo is currently aspiring for Mbarara City South Division Mayoral seat against Kajubi and having city division headquarters at Nyakayojo would boost his chances at polls against Kajubi.
Kajubi in response said that Jomo is just politicking in this thing because he thinks that when he obtains the division headquarters and interim division Mayoral seat it will support him more in the race for the next election.
According to the Town Clerk Tibihika, he said that the Minister was clear on these guidance that the headquarters for Mbarara City South Division be put at Nyamitanga while for North be put at Kakika, therefore no one can change what the big man had said unless he comes back and changes on the already made guidelines.
