The Minister of Local Government Raphael Magyezi says his ministry has received resolutions from 32 town councils that are seeking elevation to Municipality status.

The town councils that have submitted resolutions for elevation include Luwero, Bombo, Kapeeka-Semuto, Kyotera, Lukaya and Lyantonde.

Leaders from the areas are optimistic that the elevation will help to improve service delivery, attract more jobs and effective planning, among other benefits.

According to the Local Government Act, the conditions for the creation of a municipality include having the capacity to meet the cost of service delivery and office accommodation, the existence of a physical development plan for land use, reliable water sources and a reasonable financial base.

But Magyezi says that the majority of the town councils applying are yet to meet some of the requirements.
