The government has through the Public Service Ministry developed software and phone application that will help in the fight against ghost workers and corruption.

Dubbed the Human Capital Management system, the software will capture the data of all civil servants from the day they are enrolled and will be accessible through a phone App dubbed the people’s HR from the play store. 

The system will accommodate all levels of civil servants from right Security guards, cleaners, and health workers at health centres among other government staff.  

Dan Ndyabagiira, the Principal Human Resource Officer Ministry of Public Service, says that the system has inbuilt controls especially on the data fed into the system, saying that it will be hard for non-civil servants to enter data in the system.

Christopher Irama, the Assistant Commissioner of Human Resource Management Ministry of Public Service, says that the system will cut off the face-to-face interaction between the human resource department and staff. 

He says even those that will be applying for leave will need not travel with documents.

Irama says that the software will also be used to recruit staff in all government departments, agencies, and local governments.

Cue out: …Human resource management.”//  

Allan Kagaba Rukiira, the head of the human resource Mbarara district says the system is set to address the challenges they are facing through the use of the integrated personal and payroll management system.
