Benjamin Tumusiime made the remarks during an exclusive interview with our reporter in his office in Kagadi Town on Saturday..
He condemned the religious conflicts that locked the district at the end of last year praying for a peaceful coexistence and an end to the religious differences in the New Year 2024.
Benjamin said for a society to develop, it requires a diverse of ethnic groups who bring in new ideas for economic growth, asserting that development does not segregate in tribes.
Commenting on the looming political season, Commissioner Benjamin urged the community to elect leaders basing on merit guiding that tribalism might lead to loss of good leaders whose leadership can contribute to the development of the area.
He reminded the masses of the NRM’s four principles of Patriotism, Pan–Africanism, Social-Economic transformation and Democracy that had been instilled out of the chaotic politics and governance that had befallen Uganda for many years.
Benjamin also cautioned the masses against the bankrupt politics of identity, wars of greed and ignorance that do not allow democratic politics to survive.
