Mohamed Hassan the councillor representing South division says Moroto Municipal Council has lost many motorcycles and vehicles to reckless drivers who are not employed by the council. Says Hassan: “As we speak, Moroto Municipal council has only one lorry on road. Many other vehicles have broken down. Some are spoiled by officers who drive vehicles past 5pm while drank,’

The meeting resolved that only the Town Clerk and the Mayor would be allowed to use municipal vehicles after working hours.

Grace Adyaka the women representative said all the Municipal council vehicles must be parked at the Municipal yard by 5pm and keys handed to the office of the Municipal Engineer.
