The leadership structure in Uganda starts from the local levels and at least every village has a leadership team that comprises of the Chairperson LC1, Vice Chairperson, Secretary, Defense Secretary, Women affairs commonly referred to as Nabakyala and other two or three committee members.


These among other roles but mostly the chairperson helps to verify and authenticate their residents. It’s these LC1 Chairpersons who can tell whether a person is a resident of a certain village. The same LC Chairperson authenticates land sale agreements with their stamp.

According to the electoral commission statistics as of September 2020 Uganda has a whooping 70626 villages in 10595 parishes found in 2184 sub counties and municipal divisions in 146 districts.

These were last elected in July 2018 and their term of officer elapsed last year but election of new chairpersons has been extended 6 months twice by the Minister of Local government sighting absence of funds to hold the elections of the village chairpersons the latest extension being in January 2023.

Now the minister of Local Government Raphael Magyezi has now started agitating for the enhancing of the salaries of LC1 chairpersons saying their current pay doesn’t match the economic strides the country faces.

Speaking and interacting with Parliament’s Committee on Public Service and Local Government, Magyezi says chairpersons at Village and Parish levels are paid Shs10,000 per month a total of Shs120,000 per year while the LC3 Chairpersons of Sub Counties are paid Shs400,000 and this pay was last revised almost 20 years ago in 2005.
