It’s a burden to tax payers! Former Sheema Woman MP, Rosemary criticizes local Gov’t’s move to create new constituencies

SHEEMA- The former Sheema district woman MP Hon Rosemary Nyakikongoro has lashed at the decision by the local government on the creation of 46 new constituencies arguing that it’s uncalled for.

Ms Nyakikongoro’s argument comes shortly after the cabinet approved the creation of 31 new counties that included Ruhinda South carved from Ruhinda County in Mitooma district.

In June this year, cabinet had also approved the creation of other 15 constituencies which included Buhweju West in Buhweju district now making a total of 46 new constituencies.

According to Nyakikongoro who is also vying for the Sheema district Woman MP Seat, this was uncalled for since it adds nothing to service delivery but instead adds a burden to taxpayers.

In her suggestion, Nyakikongoro said;

“It would have been better if the current counties are elevated into districts and then be represented by two MPS other than creating new ones from the already crippling ones,” Ms Nyakikongoro noted. The former legislator says, female Parliamentarians have from the past been entrusted with a huge task of representing the whole district compared to Constituency MPs.
