The Karenga Resident District Commissioner, Samuel Hashaka Mpimbaza currently operates under a tree. Tables are brought to three in the morning and taken back to one of the shops near the tree where the RDC operates from. 

On Tuesday, the RDC found a heap of human waste under the tree where he operates from.

Although Mpimbaza, who was moved to Karenga district that was operationalized on July 1, 2019 claims to be okay, his face can tell how he's frustrated with the work of shifting tables every day and most times operates on the verandah of the shop when it’s raining.  

"Am okay, remember even Rome was not built in one day. So soon as people of Karamoja we shall be okay but what matters is that we are delivering service to the people as one," he said.

He said lack of office space couldn't prevent him from executing government work in Karenga. "Let's look at bigger things like how to give un-compromised service to the people of Karenga," he said.

Patrick Lemukol, one of the anti-corruption monitors in Karenga, said having an office block is good but what's important is that all the departments are operating.

"You may have a powerful office block but output from that block is zero. What people of Karenga want is services delivered to them whether from under the trees or elsewhere," he said.

Betty Teba, another resident appealed to the government to work hard and improve infrastructure in Karenga district.
