By Nathan Bahangwa
KABALE- The state minister for finance, planning and economic development (General Duties) Hon Henry Musasizi Ariganyira has asked leaders in kigezi sub region to embrace capacity building and create awareness with project implementers in order to champion the public private partnership agenda. 

 

This was contained in his speech read for him on Thursday by the Kabale Resident District Commissioner Godfrey Nyakahuma during the opening of the two-day public Private Partnership capacity building workshop that was held at Cephas Inn Makanga hill, Central division, Kabale municipality, Kabale district. The workshop was attended by district leaders of the Six districts that form kigezi sub region.

 

 

Minister Musasizi noted that as leaders they need to come up with a common knowledge to recognize the poor infrastructure in their local governments which hinders the social economic development as government archives its obligation through direct commitment of funds under the national budget for the development of public infrastructure and services.
