Mr. Enos Nyawathekwa on salary….
Mr. Jacob Mukubi another LC2 chairperson in Bwera sub-county, says the Five percent given to them compared to 25% of LC1,s is too little to run office businesses. Mr. Mukubi on offices….
Fort Portal High Court recently ruled that it was not necessary to pay a salary to LCIs and LCIIs for the services they render to the country.
While dismissing the bid, presiding Judge Emmy Vincent Mugabo said that LCs voluntarily apply to occupy these offices and that they know at the back of their mind that there is no salary attached.
Government only pays them an annual allowance of Shs120, 000 shillings annually. END.
