The Office of the Prime Minister is investigating Kyotera District officials for allegedly demanding bribery and extortion from job applicants.    

It is alleged that the officials stealthily solicit bribes from the job applicants promising to be shortlisted and recruited but in most cases, they do not deliver after receiving the money.  

Justine Kasule Lumumba, the Minister for General Duties in the Office of the Prime Minister, says that she has received several complaints from job seekers and some concerned district councilors.  

Lumumba says the crime is difficult to prove since it is stealthily orchestrated and coordinated at the expense of the desperate job seekers.  

Several people and councilors have implicated Patrick Kintu Kisekulo, the LCV Chairman, and the officials of the District Service Commission to be part of the racket.

However, Kisekulo refuted the allegations saying that he received several complaints that the bribes are being taken by the district service commission-DSC.

According to Rose Nalubowa, the Chairperson for Kyotera District Service Commission says that the allegations against the commission are baseless and threatening to tarnish her reputation.  

She says that when she assumed office, they cautioned all people not to give bribes to conmen.

Cue out:” ...service commission.”//  

Nalubowa says that the commission has always turned down huge offers from district officials who want their children to be recruited.

According to Nalubowa, there are two factions in the district council, one being in support of the Kisekulo and another opposing him which has caused bickering on trivial matters.

Cue out…check us negatively.”//  

She noted that corruption usually affects the employee’s performance or productivity as well as morale since they have it in mind that they are paid to get a job. This negatively affects performance, output, and overall staff confidence.
