KARONGI — Certain public officials of Karongi District in the Western Province have been blamed for poor service delivery.
The mayor, Bernard Kayumba, made the remarks during a meeting that took place at Gatwaro stadium after a special district community work (Umuganda) on Wednesday.
He said if services in the district are not delivered well, the expected levels of achievements envisioned cannot be attained.
‘Service delivery in our district is still lagging behind. If an official cannot perform well in his or her duties…then you cannot achieve your goals in any way,’ he said.
He went on to comment about the conduct of some government officials whom he said have low performance levels of service delivery warning that tough measures will be taken against them.
‘These officials who ignore or delay to provide services to local population should know that their days are numbered. We shall work hard to see that this issue is sorted out,’ he said.
The mayor reminded residents to work hard and strive to fit into the modes of the East African Community.
