Voters have tasked Francis Atugonza, the Outgoing Hoima Municipality Mayor who is seeking re-election on the FDC ticket to explain how he will appoint his executive once he is returned to office.
The voters want Atugonza to assure them on his plans for the executive because in 2009 three National Resistance Movement members on his executive resigned in the middle of his five year term grounding business of the council to a halt.
They are William Kunihira the Vice Chairperson, Joseph Byesigwa, secretary for Finance and Grace Mary Mugasa Secretary for Education.
The trio resigned after Amama Mbabazi, the NRM secretary general told them that it was unconstitutional for them to serve on the executive whose chairman belongs to the opposition.
This left Atugonza with only one executive member Livingstone Ssetumba, secretary for production and marketing. Ssetumba was an NRM leaning independent councilor.
Having beard the blunt of the problem, voters couldn't leave Atugonza go without answering a question on how he plans to select his executive committee once elected Mayor on March 2.
Anthony Tumusiime, a vendor at Hoima Hardware market demanded to know how Atugonza will appoint his executive if only NRM members are elected as councilors to Hoima municipal council.
Tumusiime argues that he is worried the municipality could face the same problems it faced after the resignation of the three executive members.
Atugonza, who addressed the vendors on Monday evening during his campaign trail, dodged the question saying he did not want to cross the bridge before reaching it.
The FDC man was however quick to blame Mbabazi for ordering the resignations accusing him of working for the underdevelopment of Hoima.
Atugonza wondered how a man from Kinkizi could come to make orders in Hoima. Opposition members saw the resignations as a move by the ruling party to frustrate Atugonza, a member of the FDC and work for his downfall.
Atugonza faces stiff competition from NRM's Grace Mary Mugasa, a former member of his executive and David Maxwell Kaboyo, an independent candidate and former Hoima town council LC3 Chairman.
