The mayor of Nyamagabe district, Boneventure Uwamahoro said that resigned leaders had poor performance.
“We are going to give them feedback on their resignation letters. I am certain that their requests will be approved. They also mentioned their weakness disregarding duties and underperformance,” he said.
Uwamahoro explained that sectors like Mugano and Kibumbwe occupy back seats in several development and citizens’ wellbeing programs.
He said that the district’s assessment last month pointed out stalling development programs attributed to grass-root leaders failure to deliver.
Apart from resigned officials, the executive secretaries of Kitabi, Kaduha, Kibirizi and Cyanika sectors received a warning to improve performance.
The resignations come two days after the visit of the Minister of Local Government (MINALOC), Prof Anastase Shyaka who expressed dissatisfaction with how Nyamagabe district is addressing problems related to citizens’ wellbeing. He advised that leaders failing to deliver should be held accountable.
