The Nabilatuk Resident District Commissioner, Milton Odongo has directed the Chief Administrative Officer Luke Abongo to discipline civil servants who are fond of absconding from duty.

The directive follows various complaints from residents about poor service delivery.

During monitoring of government projects, Odongo was disappointed to find that the civil servants are often absent from duty while others report for work after 10: 00 am. He also noted that there is generally low performance of the staff because some of them work for less than two hours.

Odongo has directed the Chief Administrative Officer to take disciplinary measures against the officials who absentee, report to duty late or leave early without strong reasons. He described the practice as corruption because the same absentee workers are paid by the government.

The LCV Chairperson Nabilatuk, Paul Lokol also said that some of the civil servants were becoming notorious for absenteeism and late coming. Lokol says that he has officially told the CAO on notice asking him to understand from the staff what the matter is and asked his office to address the issue immediately.

Lokol says he has observed late coming and absenteeism by the district staff over months and nothing is improving.

The Chief Administrative Officer, Luke Abongo declined to comment when contacted saying he was out of the district on official duty.

“I cannot yet comment because I have been out of the district for a while, I am on my way there,” before he hang-up.
