Last kicks of a dying Horse: M7 declines to meet Eng. Silver Mugisha’s envoys over his contract
By Wallnetnews team
Eng. Silver Mugisha, the outgoing Managing Director of National Water and Sewerage Corporation whose two-term contract as Director expired last year is in state of disbelief after president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni refused to meet some of the Envoys he had sent to convince president to renew his contract.
This came after he had got information that Eng. Richard Gisagara was earmarked to replace him. Wallnetnews moles have been informed that the head of state is hesitant to renew Mugisha’s contract on the grounds he is studying all his reports.
Now, out of frustration, Mugisha who is dying to remain at NWSC helm was recently overheard at the function in Bushenyi threatening that if government doesn’t want him to work, they should compensate him.
Afew months ago Mugisha met Reverends in Bushenyi and tipped each of them with a “retirement” goat of shs300,000.
Through his friend Bishop Johnson Twinomujuni of West Ankole Diocese, Eng. Mugisha convened over 80 reverends in his home District at Hotel Tuuza whom it is alleged he seeks to petition the President for renewal on grounds that he has equally helped the church.
Eng. Mugishs’s contract expired on August 31st despite the Board having extended him. However, President Yoweri Museveni – the final appointing authority has since gone silent over the same which puts his [Mugisha] job in the air.
“Had the President not wanted me, he wouldn’t have accepted the Board to re-appoint me,” sources reveal that he told the reverends during the meeting.
Previously all former managing directors were serving two terms, it is not clear why the NWSC board decided to give Mugisha a third term. Dr. Eng Mugisha who has headed the Corporation for the last ten years saw his contract expire on August 31st, 2023, and has since been in office only in hopes of the President renewing him but in vain.
There are alleged reports that all has not been well at this water body and some months back, it was reported that the computers of the corporation were hacked into causing the loss of very vital information. This caused a lot of suspicion with people wondering what the motive was.
On the other hand, he has brought his blue-eyed manager Mr. Paul Kahigi, former FDC Bushinyi District LC.5. Chairperson candidate, to stand on Minister Raphael Magyezi former seat – Igara West on an NRM ticket. This is to impress his boss for converting opposition leaders to the NRM party. Mr. Kahigi is NWSC Western Coordinator.
