Local govt leaders want more powers

Local government leaders want the central government to revert more financial and decision making power to them.

Under their umbrella organization, Uganda Local Government Association , the leaders say, since they are on the ground and closer to the public, they are more knowledgeable about the demands of their people.

The association president Fredrick Guma says they should be empowered to plan and implement development programs at the local level
