There was drama in Makhonje Khanje village in Bumasikye Sub County in Mbale district when angry residents decided to vote out their area LC 1 chairperson for alleged theft of a pig.
The residents faulted Robert Masaba for not being exemplary and immediately threw him out of office by electing new leadership.
Masaba is alleged to have stolen a pig belonging to Francis Welishe, the former area LC I chairperson of the same village last month.
He confessed to the theft in a village meeting and promised to compensate his predecessor Shillings 150,000 for his pig within one month.
Masaba asked the residents to calm down, saying it was his turn and tomorrow would be for another.
Paul Wepondi Wefwe, the newly elected LC I chairman pledged to work with the locals and unite them to witness development in the area.
