Authorities in Kabale Municipality have closed offices of power distributors UMEME over failure to pay property tax.
Alex Beigana,the Principal Assistant Town Clerk in Charge of the Central Division, together with law enforcement officers stormed the UMEME offices in Kabale and put them office under key and lock over failure to pay property tax.
Baingana says that they have been demanding the property tax for the last four years but Umeme has for years kept a deaf ear.
The workers on duty were ordered out of the building and the authorities promised to reopen the structure upon the payment of the tax in question.
The unpaid amount of money is yet to be made public by the authorities.
UMEME is yet to comment on the matter.
