Minister Magezi Takes Action to Address Grievances of Excluded Vendors at Kabale Central Market

By Obed Kankiriho

KABALE – Tomorrow (Sunday), the esteemed Minister of Local Government, Honorable Raphael Magezi, will attentively listen to and address the grievances of legitimate vendors who were unfortunately overlooked during the relocation process to the new Kabale Central Market.


During his visit earlier this year in January, Minister Magezi became aware of several concerns raised by the vendors. In response, he took decisive action by establishing a committee led by the capable Kabale deputy resident district commissioner, Ronald Andrew Bakak.


The committee’s primary responsibility was to thoroughly investigate the matter and gather crucial documents such as memoranda of understanding, national identity cards, and allocation slips from each vendor. This rigorous process aimed to identify any loopholes that may have occurred during the verification and distribution procedures.

Upon the completion of their diligent work, the committee presented a comprehensive report to the minister, outlining their findings and providing recommendations to address the issues raised by the aggrieved vendors.


However, during the minister’s second visit to Kabale today, he observed that certain lockups remained inaccessible, and he received numerous complaints regarding the urgent need for a fresh allocation of stalls and lock-ups.


Additionally, the matter of corruption within the market was brought to the forefront by the vendors at Kabale Central Market. Minister Magezi, who arrived in Kabale last night, convened a substantial four-hour meeting at the esteemed White Horse Inn Hotel.


In attendance were Kabale Municipality technocrats and district political leaders, who joined forces to discuss the pressing concerns and review the recommendations compiled by the committee established back in January.

This gathering aims to pave the way for constructive dialogue and collaboration, facilitating the discovery of viable solutions moving forward.
