Fort Portal gets city clerk

Fort Portal has, for the first time since its creation in July 2020, received a substantive city clerk.

David Kyasanku, who reported for duty today, March 7, 2023, replaces Richard Ndora, who has been in an acting capacity since November last year.

According to records, a total of six clerks have served in Fort Portal in only two years.

Kyasanku today received instruments of power from Ndora, who has now also taken over as deputy city clerk.

Ndora, in his handover report to his new boss, said the city’s top priority is the completion of its council chambers as well as the acquisition of land titles for all land that belongs to the city.

Ndora also reported to his new boss about the poor funding of the city by the central government.

Kyasanku promised to work towards rejuvenating Fort Portal’s lost glory as the cleanest urban authority in Uganda.

He challenged all heads of departments to work as a team for effective service delivery in the city.

Fort Portal mayor Asaba Edison Ruyonga called on the city clerk to prioritize the local men’s interests since they are the majority taxpayers in the city.

Fort Portal Resident City Commissioner Emmanuel Businge said corruption remains one of the city's biggest challenges.
