Koboko District councillors on Monday rejected to approve three people
as members of the District Service Commission.
The names of Daniel Agoi, Bakole John and Bran Sebbi Aluma were

that, he was not told why only Betty Dronyi Arike and Bugha Karube Twahir were
approved out of the five members that were presented.
