A council session convened to discuss the impasse in Hoima town council following the resignation of top executives, has aborted prematurely.
Three NRM members who were on the Hoima town council executive resigned their seats last week, following a resolution from the district delegate's conference.
Hoima town council is led by FDC's Francis Atugonza.
The resignation of the three NRM members grounded work in the town council forcing Jackson Amanya, the speaker to convene a meeting to address the situation.
However hours into the meeting, William Kunihira, the former LC3 vice chairman, who resigned his post moved a motion asking the speaker to adjourn council business.
Kunihira said they could not conduct the town council business because there was no government. He asked his former boss Francis Atugonza to resign his seat because he had failed to form an executive.
Kunihira was supported by other NRM councilors, who immediately walked away from the meeting. However Atugonza would not have any of this.
Francis Atugonza, said that he is not ready to resign unless advise by the attorney general. Atugonza said he considering petitioning the constitutional court, for interpretation on the matter.
Jackson Amanya warned the councilors that their action was detrimental to the development of the town council.
