Leaders in Butenga Sub-county, Bukomansimbi district, were shocked to discover that thieves had audaciously stolen the doors of a recently built pit latrine, adding an unforeseen challenge to the ongoing development of the sub-county headquarters at Kanoni village along the Villa Maria-Bukomansimbi-Sembabule highway.

Kagimu Leonard Ssalongo, the sub-county Chairperson, expressed disbelief, stating, “I came to monitor the site when I saw that the metallic doors that we have just put on the latrine were stolen.” The incident has disrupted the construction project, highlighting the vulnerability of the area to theft.

Nayiga Sylvia Kawoko, the Parish chairperson, voiced concerns about the hindrance to development: “We are just constructing our sub-county headquarters, but there is no way we are going to develop when everything we put in place they steal them.”

Since Bukomansimbi became an independent district in 2010, Butenga sub-county has lacked its own offices and has been operating from Kabaka’s buildings. Kagimu revealed, “After a period of now 13 years while borrowing Kabaka’s buildings, in the financial year 2021-2022, the government gave us shs.20m to start constructing sub-county headquarters. So, we are appealing to the government to help us replace these doors as we are waiting for funds to finish our Headquarters building.”

Law enforcement is investigating the theft, and the community remains determined to overcome challenges and continue their development efforts.
