We Only Collected 79.8% Of Local Revenue – Chairperson Arinaitwe
By Innocent Ruhangariyo
Kabale– Central division in Kabale municipality collected 79.8% of local revenue in the last financial year 2021-2022.
This was revealed Wednesday by Sam Arinaitwe; the central division LCIII chairperson while addressing the municipality stakeholders’ engagement meeting in what was termed as “BALAZA” at central division headquarters in Kabale municipality.
Arinaitwe said that failure to reach the targeted amount was due Covid-19 financial effects but the little money that was given to them as the division was effectively utilized which he said this was due to cooperation and unity between the political wing and technical staff of the division.
He further asked the municipality to look forward and see where and how they will generate enough revenue for the divisions after most of them no longer operate around town, a case in point an issue of truck drivers being stopped from packing in town but only Rubaare in Ntungamo district and Katuna border which may also hinder the success of the businesses in the division and municipality in general.
