Bulambuli Councilors Reject District Service Commission Nominees

Charles Wepukhulu, the councillor representing Buyaga town council, alleges that the district chairperson extorted 15 Million Shillings from each member.
Bulambuli District council has rejected the new members of the district service commission. 

     

Simon Peter Wonanzonfu, the LCV Chairperson presented Charles Gimei Wonasolo from Buginyanya as the chairperson of the board, Paul Namisi from Sisiyi, John Mafabi from Bumasobo, Sam Wetsenge from Bulambuli town council and Joyce Wasagali Manana from Bunalwere.   

However, the names sparked off confrontations and heated exchange after the councillors accused Wonanzonfu of sectarianism, extortion and intrigue.

Charles Wepukhulu, the councillor representing Buyaga town council, alleges that the district chairperson extorted 15 Million Shillings from each member.

Joseph Mudulo, the councillor from Bumasobo Sub County revealed that the district service commission has a pending court case of incompetence, corruption and abuse of office when one district staff dragged them to court for alleged illegal recruitment of staff in the financial year 2019-2020 which is yet to be disposed of.    

Moses Mwayafu, councillor representing Buluganya faulted chairperson for failure to present the district state of affairs and reports from service commission for the last five years of office.

Milton Chelangat Kamalengin, the Chief Administrative Officer Bulambuli district pleaded with the councillors to approve the new service commission members to expedite the recruitment of new staffs in the district.   He says Bulambuli has received funds to recruit new staff.

The disagreements forced Dalia Wodada the district speaker Bulambuli to adjourn council indefinitely.   

However, some councillors who include John Woniala, Silver Magona, and Vincent Muloni insisted the new members of the commission were substantial and meet all the requirements.  They pleaded with the councilors to approve the names, but their pleas fell on deaf ears.
