Rashid Ssentongo, the Senior Inspectorate in the office of the Inspectorate of Government in Eastern region says that absenteeism is affecting service delivery in the district because the technical staff expected to implement activities are not in the office.
On Tuesday, Elungat through a report by the District Executive Committee presented another dossier to the council on the same matter through the leader of the council business, Samuel Akol. The report indicated that the Public Service Commission had okayed the recruitment of Adongo against his complaints.
According to Elungat, some officials have their preferred candidates whom they work very hard to recruit at the expense of other applicants. He says that in some scenarios, the officers don’t declare the available vacancies to the Ministry of Public Service and if they do, the number is exaggerated.
Batambuze was signing appointment letters and posting instructions of more than 90 staff when the District Chairperson and his executive stormed his office on Thursday accusing him of soliciting bribes from the applicants.
