He appealed to the parents and residents of Maghasa to support the contractors with delivering of materials and carrying of water to the site since the community has a challenge of water and hard reach terrain.

The deputy RDC incharge of Bukonzo Mr. Maate asked residents of Maghasa to cooperate with Kabira foundation to ensure that the project is implemented with no challenges.

He also asked the people of Bwesumbu to learn to appreciate and support efforts and programs of Government rather than always criticizing because it affects service delivery.

KASESE TASK FORCE TO BAN ILLEGAL TRADE OF MEAT FROM SANKA.

In a bid to combat the spread of Anthrax from the neighboring districts to Kasese, District Task force has resolved to consult the law on how they can ban the trade of meat coming from Sanka to Kasese District.

Anthrax outbreak was reported in Kyotera District in the month of June and over 15 cases have been confirmed in Kyotera.

Though Kasese has not yet received any Positive Case of Anthrax, the trade of illegal meat from Sanka has remained the biggest threat to transfer anthrax to the district. In addition, Kasese remains the major route for transporting animals from Uganda to DRC .

This triggered the district Task force to hold a planning meeting to do early preparations in case of any eventualities.

According to the District Veterinary Officer Dr. Kibaya Yusuf, consumption of meat in Kasese is very high which exposes the community to a very high risk of acquiring Anthrax.

Dr. Kibaya condemned the trade of  Sanka meat which he said is coming from dead animals that traders buy cheaply and sell in Kasese district at a very low price.

He reported to the task force that sofar they have buried 2 cows which were suspected to be having Anthrax however, results came out negative.

He appealed to the leaders to support regulation of trade of meat in the district and fighting transportation of contaminated meat from Sanka which is a biggest threat to all efforts to control the spread of Anthrax.

The RDC LT. Joe Walumbi called upon all stakeholders to join efforts with the Task Force to prevent the spread of anthrax to the district. He asked all members of the district task force to make public health a priority and avoid defending illegal actions which put the public health at a risk.

The RPC Rwenzori region pledged cooperation with other stake holders to fight illegal trade of non-inspected meat in the district to protect the public from Anthrax and other health hazards.

The Principal Health Inspector , Kasese Municipality ,Mr. Kabagambe said that  there is no public health law that allows transportation of un preserved meat from one district to another. He added that the law only allows transportation of live animals not dead animals.

The district Task force formed a small committee of technical stakeholders to consult and interpret the law to guide their actions against illegal trade of meat in the district.

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.

The District Budget 2020/21

A total of Ushs. 86,410,621,000 has been projected as total revenue for the FY 2020/21 compared to Ushs. 74,008,326,000 during
the FY 2019/20 representing a 16.8% increase in the revenue forecast. The district has projected to raise Ushs 5,277,935,000 from
locally generated sources compared to Ushs. 1,620,462,000 during the FY 2019/20 representing an increase of 225.7%. The
increment is mainly as a result of re-adjustments in projections in local revenue sources such as loyalties, inspection fees, property
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.
