Kwania district has resumed the recruitment of staff that was previously blocked by the High Court in Lira.

  In May, Kwania district advertised 55 vacancies mainly in the education, health and administration departments. However, the recruitment was subsequently blocked by the Lira High Court following a petition by a group of district councillors.

The councillors cited irregularities claiming the recruitment was never approved by the district council.  

Albina Awor, the Kwania District Chief Administrative Officer, says whereas they have been cleared to conduct the recruitment, the district is still waiting for the recruitment guidelines from the Ministry of Public Service.  

  Awor noted that the delay to recruit workers has hampered both administration of the district and service delivery in the area. 

Jimmy Okello Ecun, the district councillor representing Nambyeiso Sub County also one of the petitioners said whereas the district has been given cleared to conduct the recruitment, they are waiting for the main application.   

Okello also questioned why the district has opted to hire Amolatar district service commission instead of using the of the Apac district, where Kwania was carved from.  

The main application will be heard on December 18th by the Lira resident High Court Judge, justice Alex McKay Ajiji.
