Rukiga

The Resident District Commissioner for Sheema District Frank Besigye Kyereere last week dragged  the leadership of his village’s self-help group to local council II Court  for failing to cater for the burial expenses of his late father,

Kyerere is now demanding for 210,000 shillings which he says he was meant to receive as a member upon losing a close relative.

Kyereere is a resident of Nyakahanga Village, Nyarurambi parish,Rwamucucu Parish in Rukiga District.

It’s alleged that the village group (Nyakahanga Twezikye group) chose not to take care of his father’s burial expenses three months ago after the commissioner defaulted on the Monthly fees worth 1,000 shillings for three years in a row.

According to the constitution of the group, every member pays a monthly subscription of   1,000 shillings, and anyone who fails to do so for at least three months ceases to be a Member.

Kyerere had according to the group leadership failed to subscribe for three years and therefore wasn’t a member anymore.
