Kasese commended for her performance in the implementation of PDM


Kasese district has been named the Parish Development Model hub for the Rwenzori Sub-Region after performing better than other Local Governments that are located within the sub region.

Mr. Eriab Begumya Ntarwete, the Deputy District Chief Administrative Officer made the revelation yesterday afternoon during a parish development model stake holders’ meeting that aimed at preparing the SACCOs’ leaders and other implementers for second phase of the PDM.

According to Mr. Ntarwete, Kasese District in the first phase disbursed 22billions to the 197 parish development model SACCOs and 80% of them were progressing despite of a few challenges.

Now that government has already disbursed another 50millions to each parish waiting to be given to the beneficiaries, the deputy CAO warned the Parish development model committees to critically follow the right procedures while giving money to the people, avoid bribes and misusing the offices.

He noted that despite the fact that Kasese District has been selected a PDM hub, his office was still receiving complaints about corrupt leaders including committee members and some parish chiefs who are abusing the process to meet their selfish interests.

Mr. Julius Baluku the District PDM focal person asked the Parish development model committees to stick to the procedures and transparently execute their duties.

Mr. Girivazio Monday Bwambale, the Kasese District secretary for social services, highlighted the sub counties under investigation for misappropriation of the PDM funds.
