Insights from Chiefs (Chief Chinyaku)

Chief Nalubamba last year noted that the current ineffectiveness of local chiefdoms was partly due to the fact that government has left these structures below the district level to fend for themselves. A key example is provided by Chief Chinyaku:

"I am appealing to government to quicken the process of providing motor vehicles to chiefs. When I went to see the clerk of the House of Chiefs, I was told that vehicles were coming. But when are they coming because this is April or may be they will come after I die..... I use a bicycle and I don't tour some areas of my chiefdom. When we ask the district commissioner about the vehicle loans, he only says we should wait. How long are we going to wait?"
