Disagreements have emerged over the location of Mbarara City South division headquarters.
Mbarara City South division comprises of former divisions of Kakoba, Nyamitanga and Nyakayojjo.
While officially launching the Mbarara city last week, the Minister of local government Raphael Magyezi directed that division headquarters be located in Nyamitanga as it is in the centre of two other former divisions.
Meanwhile in a stakeholders meeting held at Nyakanyojo division headquarters yesterday leaders and residents disagreed with the Minister’s directive arguing that Nyamitanga does not have enough land and office facilities compared to other two divisions.
Jomo Mugabi the Chairperson Nyakayonjo division said that it’s surprising for Nyamitanga division which even rents office space to be the headquarters when Kakoba and Nyakayojjo have fully furnished office facilities and enough land for expansion.
The interim Mayor Mbarara city Robert Mugabi Kakyebezi pledged to consult the relevant authorities so that the matter can be resolved.
