LOCAL ACTION ON PEACE, SECURITY AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION 2021_25

Kasese District Local Government is proud to present this five-year Local Action Plan (LAP), 2020/2021-2024-2025 on the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325. The development of the LAP has undergone several stages, from capacity building workshops, reviews by COACT and the district team, validation workshop and presentation to District Council for approval. This is a milestone in the sustenance of effort to prevent conflict and Gender Based Violence (GBV) in Kasese district.
The LAP is aligned to the District Development Plan and the National Development Plan and addresses current and emerging conflict issues including climate change and environment disasters, land disputes, ethnic and cultural issues, women’s participation in peacebuilding processes and GBV.
GBV and conflict are not new phenomena to the people of Kasese District and Uganda as a whole. Kasese has had and witnessed violent conflicts over the years but GBV is unique and needs immediate preventive measures since it touches the function of the family thus our everyday livelihoods.
Therefore, the LAP was developed at a time when Kasese district is considering community action as an alternative measure of dispute resolution thus the need to manage and prevent conflicts at community and family levels. We shall ensure a conflict sensitive environment and social cohesion as we promote e peaceful co-existence amongst the people of Kasese district.
We are grateful to the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD), Norwegian Embassy, UN Women, Coalition for Action on 1325 (CoACT) and Rwenzori Consortium for Civic Competence (RWECO) who supported us financially and technically through the entire LAP development process. We appreciate the District Local Action Plan Taskforce that worked tirelessly to make this plan a reality.
As a district, we continue to pledge our commitment to promote peace and security in Kasese for sustainable development.

Ministry to revive Kasese Schools performance

The Minister of state for higher Education doctor John Chrozestom Muyingo has assured Kasese of his support to improve the performance of Kasese District Local Government education sector. He said this during his visit to Kasese yesterday 10th May 2020 to carry out a needs assessment exercise of the schools which were affected by the floods.

He expressed his disappointment with the performance of Kasese District in 2019 PLE results where only 10% of the candidates appeared in first grade .

He added that his visit will not only look at the affected school infrastructure but will take a critical study of what is affecting the performance of Kasese as a district. Hon. Muyingo said, “Am not only looking at only the infrastructure, I need a permanent change in away this district performs academically, I will want to critically look at what is happening with the schools of Kasese and see what we can do”.

The minister visited Kilembe secondary School, Katiri and Bulembia School in company of the District Chairperson, The Mayor Kasese, H.E the Ambassador of Uganda to China Dr Crispus Kiyonga, the technical staff from the Ministry of Education, Kasese District Local Government and Kasese Municipality, the Press and other district stake holders which proceeded with a briefing at Mayor’s Garden Kasese.

Kasese schools have been affected by COVID 19 and the floods which concurrently occurred on 7th, 10th and 20th May 2020 leaving 25 schools both government and private in a complete state of devastation with furniture, building structures and reading materials either washed away or buried by the mud. In addition, some schools are serving as quarantine centers for COVID 19 and camps for the people who were affected by the floods which adds on their vulnerability .

While addresing the press, Mr george Mainja the District Education Officer said that they are plann

The district chairperson represented by his deputy Hon. Ntabose Gideon, called upon the Minister to look into the challenge of some subcounties not having any secondary school. On this, the Minister responded that government has started on the program of constructing secondary schools at least in each subsounty and by the end of December this year, they will have put up 117 secondary schools and next year, they plan to construct over 200 schools all over the country and according to the District Education Officer  Mr George Mainja, Kasese has  6 subcounties without any government school.

The RDC in his address during the meeting at the district headquarters appreciated the Minister and informed him about the challenges with online studying in Kasese where only 1 radio station is authorized to be used and only one local language yet there are many tribes in Kasese.

The minister recognized the Ambassador of China Dr.Crispus Kiyonga as a pillar of development who inspired him to join politics and has always encouraged him to support the people of Kasese.

H.E Dr. Crispus Kiyonga appreciated d efforts to support the people of Kasese and mentioned that more plans are in the pipeline to continue mitigating the effects of the floods.

Kasese has received several ministries responding to the floods after the president’s visit including the Office of the prime Minister, Ministry of works, Ministry of Education and Ministry of health and more responses are underway. This is a good gesture from the government of having the people of Kasese at heart

Emergency response systems stregthened

Kasese District Local Government in Partnership with Malteser international launched Emergency Medical Ambulance Services yesterday 24th May 2020 at Rwenzori International hotel to elevate the district capacity to respond to emergencies.  The event proceeded with a 10 training of Ambulance drivers and medical workers trained by National Emergency Instructors who after the training will become front-line staff in providing emergency medical services across the district.

Kasese is a district prone to disasters however the district is lacking trained emergency health practitioners and effective ambulance system. This means that accident and disaster victims do not receive prompt emergency response and appropriate care.

On May 7th, 10th and 20th May 2020, the district was devastated by floods after the major rivers burst their banks seven years after the similar floods. The floods affected 9916 households and displaced 1775 households. In response to the floods, Malteser international joined Kasese District Local Government on 10th May to respond to health emergencies with 8 ambulances and a team of 44 para medical Workers.

Since then, they have delivered 103 babies, 4 deliveries conducted in their ambulance, 1,158 referrals, given psycho-social support to 1,932 affected people and supplied 389,140 litres of water to 13 locations in affected 7 sub counties.

The team expected to support Kasese for a period of 1-2 weeks but because of the continuous high demand for their exceptional services, they decide to extend their period of service to the affected people in the district.

Kasese has some hard to reach areas and mothers with complicated deliveries fall victim because the district is still having a rudimentary emergency medical care system.

Uganda is developing its Emergency medical system and framework for delivery of cost effective services in both rural and urban settings.

Now, it is against this background that Kasese District Local Government with support from Malteser International decided to come together and equip ambulance drivers and medical ambulance staff in the district with knowledge and skills of handling common emergencies out of the hospital environment.

Aggrey Winston Muramira, now the outgoing Chief Administrative Officer Kasese District said that there is need to have a strong Emergency Medical Services system that can make timely response and rescue whenever a disaster occurs and greatly applauds Malteser International for the perfect services they have rendered to the people who were affected by the floods. The District Health Officer, Dr. Yusuf Baseke, concurred with the CAO and explained that the state of the Ambulance system is still wanting within the district.

According to Baseke, the few ambulances operating at four health centers within the district are not yet well equipped to the international standards.

He explained that all Ambulances in the district are ill equipped, a reason why they have partnered with Malteser International so that the gap is closed.

“All Sub Health Districts have Ambulances but they are not well equipped, some lack oxygen and other tools and even the nurses who are found in the ambulances are not trained on how to offer first aid in case of accident including evacuating clients from the site of an accident”, Dr. Baseke adds.

Laura Beutler, Malteser International and Technical Coordinator said that training health workers in pre hospital care response and human resource development should be sought to be one of the solutions to improve care quality.

“Kasese is a disaster prone area and therefore needs to have a strong Emergency Medical System that can make timely response and rescue when disasters occur” said Beutler.

The district stakeholders expressed their gratitude to Malteser international and their partners for strongly partnering with Kasese to save lives during the floods and extending the hand further to strengthen the district capacity for sustainability.

locally generated sources compared to Ushs. 1,620,462,000 during the FY 2019/20 representing an increase of 225.7%. The

related duties and LST. Central government transfers will increase by 13.1% in the FY 2020/21 compared to the FY 2019/20. The
projected Good performance during the FY is attributed to 1) increase in wage allocations in Education, Health and Production
sectors, 2) increase in pension, gratuity and pension arrears, 3) increased funding under in development mainly in Roads, Health,
Production and Education UGFIT for construction of Seed Schools, Increase in non-wage allocation to Education mainly for
maintenance of school infrastructure & capacity building of education stakeholders, additional grants to cater for recurrent costs,
and payment of LCs ex-gratia, and honoraria for councilors. Donor support is projected to reduce by 1.4% majorly due to reduced
commitment of Baylor towards Results Based Financing and DGF due to uncertainties surrounding the global pandemic of COVID
19 towards accountability related interventions across the district.

The plight of children in Kasese after the disasters

As the world celebrates World Day against Child Labor on June 12, 2020 under the theme, “Protect children now, more than ever before”, Kasese district will focus on the impact of the current covid-19 and floods crises on children.

While in the struggle to combat COVID-19, Kasese district experienced concurrent floods on 7th 10th and 20th May 2020 affecting 9,916 households, 48947 people, with about 80% of being children. In addition, the district has frequently faced long droughts which affect the level of production.

Unfortunately, because of the effects of the crisis on livelihoods, children are often the first to suffer. The crisis has the potential danger of pushing more of these already vulnerable children into child labor because most parents have lost their livelihoods and therefore unable to provide for their children, a situation that is likely to lure more children into child labor for survival.

According to the Senior Labour Officer Kasese, Karafule Swaib, “Already there is an estimated 25,000 children in Kasese engaged in child labor.”

These children are now at even greater risks of dropping out of school altogether or spend more time outside school eking a living.

Most children work because of household’s poverty to provide for food, shelter, clothing, school fees and scholastic materials (books and uniform)”

In Kasese child labour is found in agriculture, sand mining, brick making, store quarrying, boda boda, street and market vending, street children, fishing, maids, child marriage, prostitution and car washing.

To combat this vice, Sub-Counties and divisions should target households that supply child labor and link them with social protection services like UWEP, YLP, SAGE and Operation Wealth Creation (OWC).

The parents of children in child labour should take their children to free primary and secondary education (UPE and USE)

Or: Stakeholders at various levels should do more to senstise the families that produce child labour about the benefits of education and to re-orient the mindset about available education programmes like the Universal Primary Education (UPE) and the Universal Secondary Education (USE).

The Civil Society Organisations should initiate programmes like school feeding programmes and re-integration of children affected by child labour into the school system.

However, the ultimate answer to feeding day school children lies in the improving household food security so that families can properly feed their children before and after school and pack lunch for their children.
