A number of Kisoro district LCV councilors on Tuesday shunned an orientation training organized by the ministry of local government to enhance their leadership capacity and that of technical staff at various levels.

Only 11 councilors fully participated in the orientation while the rest signed the attendance lists and left to attend the district leaders’ forum meeting at the three-way Hotel in Kisoro Municipality.

According to the Kirundo LCV councilor, Beishubeho Luis Turyangyenda who fully participated, councilors did not concentrate on the orientation because they expected more allowances at the leaders’ forum meeting than from the orientation meeting.

this is a major challenge in Kisoro district as councilors have always been easily influenced by money” He added.

The official from the ministry of local government in charge of local councils, Natukunda Naomi, said that councilors should always choose knowledge over money.

She added that what they are teaching councilors is very important to them as individuals.

The Kisoro district LCV Chairman said that he was disappointed by his councilors because they failed to embrace orientation training yet he advocated for it to ensure that the councilors are educated about their roles and responsibilities and also understand the council rules of procedure, local government act, and constitution.

He appealed to councilors to turn up in large numbers today in order for them not to totally miss the entire orientation.

He commended the ones that fully participated in the orientation.

Meanwhile, in the leaders’ forum, members unanimously agreed to write to the NRM secretariat informing it that Bukimbiri bye-elections have two NRM Candidates and none should be favored over the other during the campaign period.

This was revealed by the forum’s chairman who doubles as the Bufumbira North MP, Hon. Kamara Nizeyimana who added that tension is likely to be created in Bukimbiri constituency if top NRM Leaders come to campaign for one candidate
