High Court in Kabale has directed Rubanda District Local Government to reinstate two of its staff who had not been considered during the recent recruitment of public servants.

On February 12, 2018, Bernard Kasangaki and Richard Mugayehwenki dragged the district to court seeking an order to stop the advertisement and appointment of new public servants to the positions they have been holding.

Kasangaki had served in Kabale district as Senior Assistant Secretary while Mugayehwenki was the Education officer in charge of special needs until July 2016 when they were transferred to Rubanda district and assigned duties of Principal Assistant Secretary and District Inspector of School- Principal respectively.

During the recent recruitment, Mugahwenkyi was replaced with Christine Komuhangi while Kasangaki was replaced with Elly Mucunguzi.

Complainants through their lawyers, Mark Mwesigye and company advocates claimed that the process in which their jobs were advertised and new people recruited to replace them was null and void. 

In his verdict, Kabale High Court registrar, Didas Muhumuza said that leaving the plaintiffs unemployed is unfair. Muhumuza ordered Rubanda District Local government to reinstate them as both parties wait for the main application.
