Madumere’s grouse with the LGA chairmen was that they failed to honour an invitation to appear before the House to explain how they have been managing the finances of their LGAs.

According to Madumere, the LGA chairmen undermined the legislature by failing to properly honour invitations sent to them on several occasions.
