Lira Main Market Leaders Lack Instruments Of Power

The newly elected leaders of Lira Main Market have blamed the poor administration to the delayed move by the Lira Municipal Council authorities to hand to them the instruments of power to enable them execute their work.

The Vice Chairperson, Daniel Ogwal Engwedo told Radio Wa that its close to two months since they were mandated by the vendors following an election, but they need a formal and legal recognition by the Municipal Council.

Last month Ogwal Engwedo said that they have written to the office of the town clerk to have them sworn in but have not been given any feed back.

Caesar Owani, the Assistant Secretary Lira Main Market Vendors Association, expressed his concerns saying the new leadership has a lot to execute such as creating pathways in the market, opening drainage systems and organising fresh allocation of stalls to vendors among others but their hands remain tied up because they still lacked the mandate.

However, Ogwal Engwedo said as a sign of relieve, the Municipal council has organized an induction training for all the market leaders under Lira Main Market Vendors association on Friday from when the leaders are expected to be sworn in.

This new development could not be independently confirmed as attempts to contact the town clerk or the Mayor were not fruitful by the time of compiling this report.
