Full District Budget Speech 2018


Mr. Speaker Sir,

The Local Government Act Cap 243 as amended part IV Section 35 Sub Section 1. “The District Council shall be the Planning Authority of the District.”

In addition, the same act, Section 83 (4) requires that the District Chairperson shall present before this Council the Revenue and Expenditure Estimates for every FY for the Council to approve. Accordingly Mr. Speaker, am performing this duty on behalf of the District Chairperson. This budget process has gone through a consultative process as espoused in the harmonized participatory planning guidelines for local governments and the Public Finance Management Act 2015.

Mr. Speaker you will recall that this budget was laid on the 22nd day of February 2018. On that day, the annual work plan for the FY 2018/19 was also laid and sector allocations were highlighted. After laying the budget, council dissolved into sectoral committees to discuss their respective sectoral budgets and work plans a process that was conducted on 10th, 11th and 14th May 2018 for Social Services, Works and Production and Finance & Planning Committees respectively. Later on 18th May 2018, the Finance, Planning & Administration Committee in view of her mandate sat to harmonize the priorities as agreed on in all the Sectoral Committees.

Mr. Speaker Sir, during the Committee sittings the Heads of Sectors presented details of the work plans and budgets for FY 2018/19 for discussion and recommendation to Council. In addition the Finance Committee discussed the extracted Integrated Capacity Building Plan, the Procurement and Revenue Enhancement Plans for the FY 2018/19 hence adoption of its report will also by extension mean approving these important budget extracts for the FY 2018/19.

Budget Performance 2017/18

Mr. Speaker the approved budget including supplementaries for the FY 2017/18 was as below:

Source                                    Budget 2017/18                             Actual at May 2018

Locally raised revenues         1,916,370,000

Central Gov’t Transfers                   53,097

Donor Support


Council recognizes local revenue collected and spent by the lower local governments. This is because the district accounting system cannot capture the 65% retained by the Sub Counties and 100% by the urban councils.

Estimates of Revenue and Expenditure for FY 2018/19

Mr. Speaker Sir, the total budget as laid was shs. 55,401,344,982 (fifty five billion four hundred one million three hundred forty four thousand nine hundred eighty two) projected from the following sources;

  • Locally raised revenues 1,592,615,000
  • Central Government Transfers 51,285,128,082
  • Donor funding 2,523,601,900

Total                                                                    55,401,344,982

However the local government planning and budgeting cycle is a continuous process and involves changes in the indicative planning figures to LGs from the central government, donors and local revenue projections by the district budget desk. During the period March-April 2018, Central Government announced a number of policy changes in third budget call circular for FY 2018/19 including the wage enhancement for science cadres. As a result the total district wage has increased from shs. 33.7 bn to shs. 39.5 bn. Also additional revenues have come from enhanced sector development grants particularly Health and Education. Thirdly government in net terms has increased the Uganda Road Fund allocation by 50.8% to shs. 4,141,607,000 including the projected emergency funding.

As a result, the total budget for the district for the FY 2018/19 as discussed by the Sectoral Committees of Council during the month of May is Ug. Shs. 67,763,480,000 (Sixty Seven billion Seven hundred Sixty Three million Four Hundred Eighty Thousand only) which will come from the following sources;

  • Locally Raised Revenue 1,852,615,000
  • Central Government Transfers 63,911,264,000
  • Donor funding 2,533,601,000

Total                                                                    shs. 67,763,480,000

Mr. Speaker Sir, as seen from above, local revenue will constitute about 2.7% of the total projected revenue, central government transfers will account for 93.6% while donor disbursements will constitute about 3.7%. Significantly Mr. Speaker we have continued to budget for Unicef support despite poor performance during the FY 2017/18 because the organization has indicated that they will support the district again.

Mr. Speaker Sir, we are aware of the priority areas of Government as outlined in the Second National Development Plan. Consequently we have allocated funds keeping in mind the government priority service areas as below;

·        Administration Shs. 13,601,799,689
·        Finance Shs. 330,828,000
·        Statutory Bodies Shs. 1,052,811,000
·        Production & Marketing Shs. 1,669,683,880
·        Health Shs. 9,973,495,721
·        Education Shs. 30,153,182,329
·        Roads and engineering Shs. 4,540,720,480
·        Water Shs. 813,574,500
·        Natural resources Shs. 673,919,897
·        Community Based Services Shs. 1,641,825,788
·        Planning Shs. 696,281,309
·        Internal Audit Shs. 60,000,000
·        Transfers to LLGs Shs. 2,555,357,407


Total                                                   Shs.    67,763,480,000

Mr. Speaker Sir, a total of shs. 39,465,584,000 or 58.2% of the projected resource envelope will go towards payment of salaries for staff, shs. 20,039,197,000 or 24.9% of the revenue will go towards recurrent activities including pension and gratuity to support decentralization and key service delivery projects, shs.                    8,867,515,000 or 13.1% of the revenue will go towards capital development projects particularly in the areas of health, education, roads and production, shs. 2,533,601,000 or 3.7% of the budget will go towards donor development projects particularly in the departments of health, community based services, education and water.

I have noted Mr. Speaker Sir, that some departments did not capture departmental Wage/Salaries when presenting to Committees. This explains some of the variations in budget totals from some departments compared to what was presented in the committees. There is a tendency to think that salaries are obvious. I have accordingly cautioned all departments to in future present wage as part of the monies for appropriation by members. The budget figures and projects are in line with our Budget Framework Paper for the FY 2018/19 as submitted to the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development and have been aligned to our 2nd five year development plan FY 2015/16-2019/20.

Mr. Speaker Sir, mobilizing the community for additional revenue is our constitutional obligation and patriotic duty. We must all engage in the noble duty to mobilize for more revenues for our council if we are to meet and attain our development goals and aspirations.

Mr. Speaker Sir, I propose that council dissolves into a committee of supplies to adopt, discuss and approve the recommendations of the Standing Committees of Council and as such approve the Revenue Estimates and Expenditures and Work plans for the FY 2018/19.

Mr. Speaker, I beg to move.

National earth hour to be celebrated in Kasese

Kasese District Local Government (KDLG) and the Ministry of Water and Environment in partnership with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) have organised the Earth Hour™ 2018 celebrations to take place in Kasese District.

Earth Hour is the world’s largest grassroots environmental movement with a mission to Unite People to Protect the Planet taking place in over 7,000 cities and 180 countries and territories. It mobilises hundreds of millions of people around the world to make a stand against climate change. Every year in March, Earth Hour celebrates the symbolic ‘lights-off’ hour from 8:30-9:30pm local time.

This year marks the 11th year since inception of this Campaign and the celebrations are being hosted in Kasese District due to its biodiversity significance to the country and beyond. The Rwenzori Mountains is global biodiversity hotspot and a water tower providing key ecosystem services and supplying essential natural resources to the public.  During COP21, images of the Rwenzori Mountains were beamed live to the participants in Paris highlighting the landscape as one impacted by Climate Change calling for quick action.

In Uganda this campaign has registered success such the first ever Earth Hour forest in the world where 250 hectares of degraded forest has been restored.    It has also increasingly engaged young people in developing solutions and innovative approaches to conservation. The first ever Earth Hour Walk, a 370km walk from Kampala to Kasese has been organized  aimed at raising awareness on the enormous loss of green cover and to drum up support to plant more trees.  This walk will climax on 24th March 2018 on Earth Hour day leading us to our grand celebrations.


Kasese District Local Government together with the District women’s council in a special way will be celebrating the International women’s day under the theme: “Empowerment of Rural Women and Girls: Opportunities and challenges.” The celebration will be held at Katholhu Primary school in Nyakiyumbu Sub County along Kasese-Bwera road starting on Thursday 22/03/2018 starting at 9.00AM. The Chief Guest is expected to be Gen. Salim Salleh. You are hereby all invited to attend.
