Darius Nandinda, the outgoing Kabale Resident District Commissioner, on Friday officially handed over office to the New RDC Godfrey Nyakahuma.
Nandinda was recently transferred to Nakasongola district in a mini-reshuffle by President Yoweri Museveni, while Nyakahuma was transferred to Kabale from Bugiri district.
In his handover speech, Nandinda commended the people of Kabale for providing him with an enabling environment to serve them for the last nine years. He also asked his successor to cooperate and work with the people of Kabale, whom he described as hardworking and straight forward people, who tell truth to power.
Nandinda, however, asked his successor to always handle with care matters related with land as they can be sensitive and divisive.
On his part, Nyakahuma commended, Nandinda for working hard for the people of Kabale and promoting the agenda of the National Resistance Movement government, promising that he will begin from where, his predecessor stopped.
He also dispelled rumours that had been making rounds that Nandinda had refused to hand over office, saying that the handover had to be done at an appropriate time, since Nandinda, had to first go and assume office at his new place of work.
Nyakahuma, reiterated his desire to work with all other leaders, so as to realize peace and development in the district.
Nandinda’s handover was later followed by a small farewell and welcoming party that took place at Arcadia cottages in Kitumba Sub County, amidst tight security and strict observation of the Covid SOPs
