Court Dismisses The Interim Application By City Council  to Restrain  Central  Investment from collecting Fees

MBALE: Court dismissed the interim application by City council to restrain central investment from collecting fees.


Mbale high court has today 18th/5/2021 dismissed an application by Mbale City council from restraining central investment agency Ltd and Mbale Truck and pick-ups Drivers Association from collecting fees from street parking and loading and offloading.

City council had rushed to Mbale high court on allegations that the contractors of street parking are there illegally, and are also getting Low revenue collection from loading and offloading.

According to their lawyer under Nagulu and Mugoda Advocates Eddie Nagulu, the court dismissed interim application which city council had brought before the court.

He adds that they have raised objection before main application, that the documents they file were not incompetent.

Mbale City council has no mandate to remove the central investment and Mbale Truck and pick-ups Drivers Association from managing fees on the streets of Mbale.

He said, the ruling shall be delivered by this court on 25th this month on the main application whether the two contractors will be restrained from the streets from Mbale.

Wafuba Muhammed director of Central investment agency shortly after court told BIF media that, Mbale city council had brought us to court to be granted orders to remove us from street parking.

Wafuba said that court has dismissed an interim application because it's incompetent, and the main ruling is on 25th and we thank our lawyer Eddie Nagulu for the good defense. 

He notes that it's not true that they are illegally managing revenue in the city they restricted the division town clerks to take charge of the revenue collection on their behalf  and the money they have been remitting on the accounts of the division council.

Mr. Wafuba said, We were given a tender but shortly after starting work, the City council began construction of Naboa and cathedral Avenue roads which frustrated the performance of revenue collection.

Phillip Kiza vice chairman of Mbale Truck and pick-ups Drivers Association thank Court for showing justice.

He added that, Mbale City council has failed to do their work and just want to bring confusion in town among the drivers.

Kiza appealed to all drivers out there to know that here we're in the war but we shall win it and court will expose the dirty of city council.

Kiza said that there was a ban on maize sales toKenya and this affected them so much because there were many trucks coming from Kenya which led to Low revenue collection for loading and offloading.

However, Mbale city council spokesperson Mr. Kutosi James informed Bugisu intellectual forum that, we have issues with Central investment and Mbale Truck and pick-ups Drivers Association over managing the fees in the city.

Mr. Kutosi said, court has set 25th this month to give the final ruling so let's wait for the outcome that's when we shall have what to say in details.
