The lack of required logistics has been highlighted as the major bottleneck to the effective implementation of the Parish Development Model-PDM in Masaka district.
Reports indicate that the district is facing challenges in serving its targeted beneficiaries seeking funds through their respective parish Savings and Credit Cooperatives-SACCOs, due to the lack of equipment and internet bundles for data entry and it’s on ward transmission.
Since the last financial year, the district has received over 600 million shillings, of which shillings 543 million are still stuck on SACCO accounts.
Barbara Nalunkenge, the Masaka District Commercial Officer in a program status report to the district council revealed that several Parish Chiefs and Parish Development Committee are failing to execute their duties in time due lack of computers and internet bundles to keep them running.
