The Finance Ministry has warned the Local Government Minister about the cost of splitting the country into more struggling units. Mwesige’s motion tabled in parliament sought to create 25 new districts beginning next financial year. This would shoot the number of districts from 112 to 137. Earlier, Mwesige had written to the ministry of finance seeking a go ahead to create the new districts over the next four financial years.
“Reference is made to the cabinet memorandum 150 (CT2015) which was presented, discussed and cleared by cabinet in August for creation of 25 new districts effective 2016/17,” Mwesige’s August 18 letter to the Minister of Finance, Planning and Economic Development partly read. The finance ministry’s permanent secretary and secretary to the treasury, Keith Muhakanizi said that: Given the commitments government has undertaken in infrastructure development, the national budget can no longer accommodate the additional expenditures arising out of the creation of new administrative units.
