Hon. Ferigo Kambale, the Kasese Municipal Member of Parliament has announced his readiness to lead a peaceful Demonstration against the government move to withdraw government pay rolled human resource from Kilembe Mines Hospital in Kasese district.
He said he was however to seek for permission from the Inspector General of Police before implementing his plan.
Addressing more than 1500 people, most of them local residents from the greater Kilembe at a community meeting at Bulembia Division headquarters in Kasese Municipality this afternoon, Hon. Ferigo said besides a legal battle in the pipeline against the same government decision shouldn’t the stakeholders’ meeting this week decides otherwise, he was to lead the locals into a peaceful demonstration to express their dissatisfaction.

In his address earlier, the seemingly inciting Mr. Chance Kahindo, the Kasese Municipal Mayor said he had responded, downplaying the recent write up by his town clerk, Mr. Geoffrey Bamanyisa against the latter’s plans to withdraw all government paid staff at Kilembe Mines hospital.

Mr. Richard Bomera, the Bulembia Division local council three chairperson and Mr. Robert Kisunzu, the Kasese district secretary for Works and Technical services who doubles as the division representative at the district, said the legal battle will stand alongside forceful transfer of government workers from the area should government insist on its decision. Mr. Bomera and Hon. Kisunzu speaking…….
Mr. Kiswahili Bwambale, a reported NRA veteran said he was ready to join any peaceful demonstration against any plan that undermines the interests of the local community members.
Earlier last week, some leaders wondered why Hon. Ferigo could not exploit the floor of parliament now the move to with government pay rolled workers from privately owned health facilities, is a countrywide plan. END
