The mayor of Arua municipal council Isa Kato who will also serve as the secretary for works and security has appointed new members of the executive.
The members include, Fadul Dradebo who will serve as the secretary for finance, Abdul Kalsum is the sectary social services. Ajobe Muhamud is the secretary for production and marketing.
The mayor who quoted the law that gives him power to appoint and dissolve says he dissolved the executives to improve on services delivering in the municipality.
The executive members who were in the previous executive bounced back with exception of Sarah Amony who was the deputy mayor.
Jackson Dratibi who was appointed as the deputy mayor rejected the position saying his life is in danger.
He unleashed some of the challenges he faced when he was in the executive. He also said his children advised him not to take up any position if appointed.
Some councilors were disappointed with Jackson Dratibi for rejecting the appointment.
The executive who were appointed took their oath which was administered by the deputy town clerk Otim Andrew.
However, the position of deputy mayor remained vacant but the mayor said he would make consultations before appointing another person. End
