Kiruhura: LC I Chairpersons urged to be vigilant, fight crime

Dan Mukago Rutetebya, the Kiruhura district LC V chairperson, has castigated the poor leadership of LC I chairpersons saying the negligence of their work has led to increased insecurity including cases of  livestock theft, murder, faking stamps to steal people’s property among others.

Speaking during the security meeting at Kikatsi sub-county headquarters on Tuesday, Mukago observed that LC I Chairpersons do not attend council meetings after learning that out of the 20 chairpersons, 10 were absent  from the meeting.

Mukago also noted that cases of murder have increased in this sub-county.

Dan Mukago added that there is a need for cooperation with LC I chairpersons if they are to manage fighting criminality in their villages/ cells.

Mukago also noted that Police in Kikatsi do not help local leaders to apprehend criminals or when arrested they are released by police.

Sulait Kitaka, the Kiruhura District Police commander promised that he will immediately solve the problem by tightening security in the area.

Kitaka tasked LC I chairpersons to always handle cases pertaining domestic violence.

Manya Allan, the LCIII Chairperson Kikatsi Sub-county revealed that three cases of murder have already been reported; alleging that strangers without identification may be behind the murder.

Kenneth Rindirira, the district councilor representing Kikatsi sub-county advised that head counting should be carried in every cell to know the number of people living in the sub-county noting that some LC I chairpersons do not know the number of residents in their cells which he says is a big problem security-wise.
